We've got plenty of these cast functions that are named to_*(). I would
argue that naming this one differently is confusing.

Also, I think this may have come from earlier review comments where I
suggested to name this structure struct pwm_sifive_chip, or just struct
pwm_sifive.

You can also disable the clock if the hardware will still apply the
configured parameters. This is really only an issue if disabling the
clock also stops the IP and prevents the configured parameters from
getting applied.
