if (xfer_time_us < BCM2835_AUX_SPI_POLLING_LIMIT_US)
If one looks at the logic as a whole...
tfr->len * 9ULL * 100000 / spi_used_hz < 30
A little algebra can change that into:
tfr->len < spi_used_hz / 300000
So rather than add more 64-bit math, it can be removed entirely. Both
the length and speed are 32 bits and there's no need to multiply them
into something larger than might need 64 bits.
