Thanks for this code. It is very interesting.
With our formula, I just notice that we don't use any i2c rise time or
fall time but they have some impacts in i2c timing computation.
So, the user could not be able to select these values for him use case. Right ?

As far as I know, we don't have any STM32Lx SoC integrated in the
linux kernel mainline.
I choose i2c-stm32f7 name as it is the first Soc integrated in the
linux kernel mainline where this IP could be used.
