Subject: [PATCH] staging: comedi: fix minimum AO period for NI 625x and NI
 628x
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

commit 34b55d8c48f4f76044d8f4d6ec3dc786cf210312 upstream.

The minimum period was set to 357 ns, while the divider for these boards is 50
ns. This prevented to output at maximum speed as ni_ao_cmdtest() would return
357 but would not accept it.

Not sure why it was set to 357 ns (this was done before the git history,
which starts 5 years ago). My guess is that it comes from reading the
specification stating a 2.8 MHz rate (~ 357 ns). The latest
specification states a 2.86 MHz rate (~ 350 ns), which makes a lot
more sense.

Tested on a pci-6251.
