The driver reads rpm, finds it to be zero, and increases div as result
(NCT6775F may report zero rpm if div is too low). That explains the
first reading.

What I don't understand is the alarm you get with the 2nd reading. Any
idea where this might come from ? Is it sticky, or do you see it only
once ?
