Changing my ARM IOP clock code to use these now shared functions
was easy, and I get the same shift/mult values as I got before. So:

Tested-by: Mikael Pettersson <mikpe@it.uu.se>

A few tiny comments about the patch follow below.

drop "dynamically"
"calculates appropriate shift and mult values" ?

This comment is inaccurate. It should say "Find shift and mult values",
or you could remove it and rely on the comment above the function
definition to document the intended behaviour.

Two empty lines?

Same issue as with the comment in clockevent_set_clock().
