It will be even easier to implement if you use GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW or
GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH as appropriate. If the flag is set appropriately,
then gpiod_set_value(gpio, 1) asserts the pulse and
gpiod_set_value(gpio, 0) deasserts it no matter which way the h/w is
wired. You can then get rid of invert_pps_echo in the driver.
