Subject: Applied "spi: pxa2xx: fix SCR (divisor) calculation" to the spi tree

The patch

   spi: pxa2xx: fix SCR (divisor) calculation

has been applied to the spi tree at 

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.  

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] spi: pxa2xx: fix SCR (divisor) calculation

Calculate the divisor for the SCR (Serial Clock Rate), avoiding
that the SSP transmission rate can be greater than the device rate.

When the division between the SSP clock and the device rate generates
a reminder, we have to increment by one the divisor.
In this way the resulting SSP clock will never be greater than the
device SPI max frequency.

For example, with:

 - ssp_clk  = 50 MHz
 - dev freq = 15 MHz

without this patch the SSP clock will be greater than 15 MHz:

 - 25 MHz for PXA25x_SSP and CE4100_SSP
 - 16,56 MHz for the others

Instead, with this patch, we have in both case an SSP clock of 12.5MHz,
so the max rate of the SPI device clock is respected.
