We really want to have an adjustable clock here. More below.

First of all, the switch can use an external clock, and so at the very
least, the period should be a macro so that if and when we support the
external clock, the macro may be converted into a variable.

Secondly, the mult/shift should be chosen to allow the finest possible
frequency adjustment. Here is what I did:

---
#define N 28
#define CC_MULT (8 << N)

int mv88e635x_setup(struct dsa_switch *ds)
{
struct mv88e6xxx_chip *ps = ds->priv;

ps->cc.read = mv88e635x_global_time_read;
ps->cc.mask = CLOCKSOURCE_MASK(32);
ps->cc.mult = CC_MULT;
ps->cc.shift = N;
timecounter_init(&ps->tc, &ps->cc, ktime_to_ns(ktime_get_real()));
...
}

static int mv88e635x_ptp_adjfreq(struct ptp_clock_info *ptp, s32 ppb)
{
u64 adj;
u32 diff, mult;
int neg_adj = 0;
struct mv88e6xxx_chip *ps =
container_of(ptp, struct mv88e6xxx_chip, ptp_info);

if (ppb < 0) {
neg_adj = 1;
ppb = -ppb;
}
mult = CC_MULT;
adj = mult;
adj *= ppb;
diff = div_u64(adj, 1000000000ULL);

mutex_lock(&ps->clock_mutex);
timecounter_read(&ps->tc);
ps->cc.mult = neg_adj ? mult - diff : mult + diff;
mutex_unlock(&ps->clock_mutex);

return 0;
}
---

(This is the legacy adjfreq method, but you can easily convert it into
the adjfine method.)

Of course, this means that you'll have to drop the periodic output
signal code.

Thanks,
Richard
