When the user requests a high enough period ns value, then the
calculations in pwm_lpss_prepare() might result in a base_unit value of 0.

But according to the data-sheet the way the PWM controller works is that
each input clock-cycle the base_unit gets added to a N bit counter and
that counter overflowing determines the PWM output frequency. Adding 0
to the counter is a no-op. The data-sheet even explicitly states that
writing 0 to the base_unit bits will result in the PWM outputting a
continuous 0 signal.

When the user requestes a low enough period ns value, then the
calculations in pwm_lpss_prepare() might result in a base_unit value
which is bigger then base_unit_range - 1. Currently the codes for this
deals with this by applying a mask:

	base_unit &= (base_unit_range - 1);

But this means that we let the value overflow the range, we throw away the
higher bits and store whatever value is left in the lower bits into the
register leading to a random output frequency, rather then clamping the
output frequency to the highest frequency which the hardware can do.

This commit fixes both issues by clamping the base_unit value to be
between 1 and (base_unit_range - 1).

Changes in v5:
- Use clamp_val(... instead of clam_t(unsigned long long, ...

Changes in v3:
- Change upper limit of clamp to (base_unit_range - 1)
- Add Fixes tag
