#### Description
I tried to know how many times that high voltage appeared of a PWM in a certain time, so i modified one of the tests: periph_gpio. Like below.
static int read(int argc, char **argv)
    int port, pin;
    int flag=0;
    int lastflag=0;
    int cnt=0;
    if (argc < 3) {
        printf("usage: %s <port> <pin>\n", argv[0]);
        return 1;

    port = atoi(argv[1]);
    pin = atoi(argv[2]);
   if (gpio_read(GPIO_PIN(port, pin)))
			 // printf("cnt:%d\r\n",cnt);
        //printf("GPIO_PIN(%i.%02i) is HIGH\n", port, pin);
    else {
	// printf("cnt:%d\r\n",cnt);
        //printf("GPIO_PIN(%i.%02i) is LOW\n", port, pin);
    if (lastflag==0&&flag==1)
    // xtimer_usleep(10 * US_PER_MS);  
    return 0;

I just wonder why the cnt number is not correct, i connect PA6 and PE9, which PE9 is set 1000HZ,500DutyCycle PWM, and the cnt is not correct, it didn't show 1000 increase in 1 second. but about 200 maybe.

What's the problem with this issue, can anybody help?! Thank you so much!
