Yeah, the NXP documentation sometimes does not really match reality.
My use case is based on the fact that I configure the pin as input in
the driver. Then it works just fine.

My test setup is as follows:
- SoC is i.MX6DL or i.MX6S - I have three board variants in total.
- Pin used for PWM/GPIO is PAD_GPIO9.
- The pin is not connected to any circuit. Just a test point.
- pinctrl setup in DT:
- for "pwm":
- fsl,pins = <MX6QDL_PAD_GPIO_9__PWM1_OUT 0x8>
- IOMUXC_SW_MUX_CTL_PAD_GPIO09 = 0x00000004
- IOMUXC_SW_PAD_CTL_PAD_GPIO09 = 0x00000008

- for "gpio":
- fsl,pins = <MX6QDL_PAD_GPIO_9__GPIO1_IO09 0xb000>
- IOMUXC_SW_MUX_CTL_PAD_GPIO09 = 0x00000005
- IOMUXC_SW_PAD_CTL_PAD_GPIO09 = 0x0000b000

Test scenario:

- In bootloader configure the pin as GPIO output, set it LOW (0V).
I set it LOW to start in the oposite state than I want to end up in.
- Boot Linux
- Use sysfs to configure the PWM to produce some signal.
- In the PWM driver select the "pwm" pinctrl state.
- Measure the output - expected waveform on the scope.
- Use sysfs to stop the PWM "echo 0 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm0/enable°
- In the PWM driver select the "gpio" pinctrl state.
- Then in the PWM driver:

a) non-working variant
- Do not request the GPIO - so do not touch its pad control reg.
It is set as output from the bootloader, data register = 0.
- Measure voltage on the output
- against GND = 0V
- against VCC = 0V
- Measure resistance against VCC: Hi-Z

The pin is in Hi-Z mode. That is fine but that does not satisfy any
logic level.

b) working variant
- Request the GPIO, configure it as input.
- Measure voltage on the output
- against GND = VCC (3.3V)
- against VCC = 0V
- Measure resistance against VCC = 91.1kOhm

The pull-up is active.

I can repeat the results on both i.MX6DL and i.MX6S on pwm1 and pwm4.
All pull-up and pull-down combinations gave me the expected results
only if the pin is configured as input. So if I repeat the test and
do not touch the pin in bootloader at all, it works as well even if
I do not request/configure the GPIO in the PWM driver.

But we can not rely on the fact that the pin is correctly configured
from bootloader or that it is in the after-reset state. It should
just work regardless of what state it was left in.

Best regards,
