We don't control the period from the kernel; only the duty cycle. (Now,
that's perhaps not a wise firmware interface, and we may fix that
someday, but you can't just declare a breaking change to a documented,

Umm, "2 cells", but you use the singular "cell", and don't document what
the second one is? That's nonsense.
