Thanks for the clarification. I was not aware that the config uses bytes, while arm uses bits for rates and bytes for totals. I must say I was not really expecting usage of bit/s at this place and deem it inconsistent. Usually I encounter bit/s only only at very low levels, close to the metal, like hardware interfaces (exception: audio streaming rates).
Any chance changing Mb/s to MB/s thoughout arm?
