To add:

in order to program the pin output correctly, you may need to reverse
the timecounter/cyclecounter calculations. I recall doing something
similar in ixgbe for programming the correct output signal to match.

It may actually be worth adding helper functions to the timecounter
system for doing those kind of reverse calculations for converting from
a time value back into cycles.
