Alas, no. clk_fractional_divider is not flexible enough to specify the
divider the
way that it is represented in the Aspeed 24xx/25xx parts which have the divider
expressed as a "base clock" which is always a power of 2 along with the time
where SCL is high and the time that the SCL is low in units of base clock.
Thus, there are two separate "numerator" values and the denominator is
represented as the ilog2 of the actual value.

That being said, I could implement this as a custom clock subclass, which
would probably be cleaner that what I have done.
