and setting the width to 1x in the driver so the rate file is properly
populated fixes this ? I must be missing something as to what is going

sysfs.c:rate_show is inconsistent as it paves over an invalid speed
setting that to SDR but does not pave over invalid width returning
-EINVAL but this comment is in another "direction".
