So this is actually a refresh rate?

Maybe you could expose it as such, and pass a frequency in Hz as an
argument.

Exposing the divider directly has some issues, since the bootloader
that set the parameter won't know the HZ value, you'll end up with
different rates for different configurations, without any way to do
something about it.

You're breaking the existing behaviour.

That won't work with multiple instances of the same driver
unfortunately.
