Hi Laurent

Thank you for your feedback

It is 2kHz. This is came from HW team, and indicated
on HW design sheet (?)

This is came from HW team, too.
They are assuming M=1, basically.
But yes confusable, let's remove it from comment.
m is started from 0 (= M=1), no need to explain.

Yes, but compiled by 32bit too, right ?
Without this "ll", 32bit compiler say

	warning: this decimal constant is unsigned only in ISO C90

# anyway, I will add this assumption (= used only by 64bit CPU)
# on comment to avoid future confusion

I think code has

	if (output >= 400000000)

This is 400MHz, not 4GHz

It is nice idea to avoid extra calculation.
I will use this idea, and add extrate comment to avoid confusion
