Yes, I agree that there should be a check for M, but I'm not sure if
the version above is sufficient. The "m % 2" check inside the loop
means that we don't break immediately when tmp=0 but then we are
guaranteed to break next time without having modified n, m because now
tmp=0 so "tmp > (target_mbps % pre)" is always false and we just hit the
"if (tmp == 0) break" case next time.
Given that the descending loop already means that if we can hit "tmp"
exactly we are more likely to do so with a bigger N and even M, I think
it might be better to just fix M after the loop like:
if (m % 2) {
if (m < 256 && (n * 2) <= (pllref / 5)) {
n *= 2;
m *= 2;
} else {
m++;
}
}
but I haven't thought about this too carefully.
For this series, I'd rather either keep this patch as it is or drop it
in favour of a more comprehensive solution. I don't want to block the
other fixes waiting for a perfect fix here and we can always improve
this further with a follow-up patch.
