Yeah, it's kind of reverse calculation. I had similar problem with SPI and I
use a brute force algorithm. But some SPI devices (example MMC) want to set
speed on their own so having this calculation is necessary anyway. In I2C world
it may be not the case (frankly, I have no insight) so it could be just "nice"
but not mandatory.
