OK. ...I guess my question would be: does it matter for some reason?
"ser_clk" is just a local variable in this function. Who cares if it's
not a multiple of best_div? This is why we're keeping track of
"best_div" in the first place, so that later in the function instead
of:

*clk_div = ser_clk / desired_clk;
if (!(*clk_div))
*clk_div = 1;

You just do:

*clk_div = best_div;

That doesn't look like a terrible result. I guess nominally 602 is a
better approximation, but if we're accepting that we're not going to
have an exact rate anyway then maybe being off by that tiny amount
doesn't matter and we'd do better with the slow clock (maybe saves
power?)

Ah, good point. Luckily that's a 1-line fix, right?
