I gave it a try, but so far I have no idea how to implement the divider
correctly and bullet proof.

What I have so far is a test which creates some cascaded dividers and sets
rates on them. The test iterates over the frequency range and a) calls
clk_round_rate with the iterator, b) sets the clk to the iterator, c)
sets the clk to the rounded rate.

Be prepared for surprises and try to fix the results... I failed for
now and wonder if the approach to the divider is wrong.
