My question targetted a different case. If the PWM is off
(!pdata->pwm_enabled) and should remain off (state->enabled is false)
you can shortcut here, can you not?

So please document this in the format the recently added drivers do,
too. See e.g. drivers/pwm/pwm-sifive.c. (The idea is to start that with
" * Limitations:" to make it easy to grep it.)

The general principle is: Pick the biggest possible duty_cycle available
for the just picked period. So in your example you have to clamp it to
period (assuming you can, otherwise pick the next lower possible value).
