Thanks for the explanation

The shortest PWM ratio which is not a constant output is 12MHz.
(Prescal 1, 2 entire cycle and 1 active cycle)

So something like this :
state->period * clk_rate >= NSEC_PER_SEC &&
state->period * clk_rate < 2 * NSEC_PER_SEC &&
state->duty_cycle * clk_rate * 2 >= NSEC_PER_SEC

I will send a v4,
Thanks for the help

Clément
