On the first glance the mentioned patch may not be the culprit because it does
not change the functional behaviour (if I'm not mistaken). What really changes
it is the additional flag that removes the left-shift of the rate in the

To me sounds like you found a proper solution to the issue and that +999 is
a hack against the (blindly?) copied part of the algorithm used in fractional
divider. Have you read the top comment in clk-fractional-divider.c? It should
explain how it works after my series.

In any case I'm not going to come to any conclusions right now and also want
to hear from people who have better understanding of this hardware.
