> In general case the maximum supported half cycle time of the synchronized
> output clock is 70msec. Slower half cycle time than 70msec can be
> programmed also as long as the output clock is synchronized to whole
> seconds, useful specifically for generating a 1Hz clock.
> 
> Permitted values for the clock half cycle time are: 125,000,000 decimal,
> 250,000,000 decimal and 500,000,000 decimal (equals to 125msec, 250msec
> and 500msec respectively).
> 
> Before this patch, only the half cycle time of less than or equal to 70msec
> uses the I210 clock output function. This patch adds additional conditions
> when half cycle time is equal to 125msec or 250msec or 500msec to use
> clock output function.
> 
> Under other conditions, interrupt driven target time output events method
> is still used to generate the desired clock output.
