please correct me if I'm wrong but I read this as "this code is OK for
now, but it should be changed once the clk framework has API for
that".
If still you want me to change the code then please send a NACK
(preferably on the updated series which I am preparing right now).

This would work as well but I prefer the way it is right now (as one
could easily extend the code without having to touch any existing code
apart from the last return).
However, as it's always the case with personal preference: if
coding-style requires me to change it then I'll do so, just let me
know.

I have addressed all other issues you found (thanks for that!) in v4
(which I am about to send in the next few minutes).


Thanks,
Martin
