This sounds like a special case you want to address, rather than
something that should be recognized by the core.

The question is what you want to achive here. What kind of peripheral do
you have connected to the other side of the PXA, and why does it need
this special needle peak on the frame clock rather than a 50% duty-cycle?

Also, I vaguely remember huge problems we had in setting up the SSP
controller of a PXA SoC. The SSP IP would do all sort of things instead
of what's described in the docs. Which silicon are you working on?
