Yes, good move.

You're right about that part. According to the specification, the "M" multiplier
in CCCR can only be 1, 2, or 3. 0 is a reserved value which should never happen,
and if it happens, hardware is already lost.
I don't want to be that defensive in this code unless it blocks something for

Ha I'll check that, thanks.

Good catch.

I'll check that too. It's probable I either forgot a clock or mispelled a

Thanks for the test Dmitry.
