I'm pretty 100,00000000000000% sure the HW doesn't permit waiting for a period to finish.

For disable states, we can either play on the period (high period at 0xffff for disable
at PWM_POLARITY_INVERSED and high period at 0 for PWM_POLARITY_NORMAL, if the HW behaves
correctly) or by adding some pinctrl states switching to GPIO modes and adding the
enable output high and output low property.
