Depends on your point of view :-D The ATmega hardware only have 8 bit counters. So this works around a hardware limitation. So one could view this as a workaround. (But 8 bit counters / timers on 8 bit platforms makes quite a lot of sense.)

On the other hand the test should not test for stuff that is not possible. So one could also view this as a fix.
