There is probably nothing wrong with two functions. I can split it into
hpet_set_comparator_periodic() and hpet_set_comparator(). Perhaps the
latter is not needed as it would be a one-line function; you have
suggested earlier to avoid such small functions.

It is not used anywhere else. I will remove this export.

Thanks and BR,
