Senseless nitpick: this unit choice will hit precision issues.
Many/most PWM implementations in the wild work on clocks in the low MHz,
so this is only going to return a few bits of frequency precision. I'd suggest
cycles_per_sec() (works as long as the clock isn't GHz scale) or
cycle_time_ps() (starts to lose precision above a few GHz, also not everyone
knows what a picosecond is) or something equivalent.
