See include/uapi/linux/ptp_clock.h:

 * Bits of the ptp_perout_request.flags field:
#define PTP_PEROUT_ONE_SHOT		(1<<0)
#define PTP_PEROUT_DUTY_CYCLE		(1<<1)
#define PTP_PEROUT_PHASE		(1<<2)

 * flag fields valid for the new PTP_PEROUT_REQUEST2 ioctl.


struct ptp_perout_request {
	union {
		 * Absolute start time.
		 * Valid only if (flags & PTP_PEROUT_PHASE) is unset.
		struct ptp_clock_time start;
		 * Phase offset. The signal should start toggling at an
		 * unspecified integer multiple of the period, plus this value.
		 * The start time should be "as soon as possible".
		 * Valid only if (flags & PTP_PEROUT_PHASE) is set.
		struct ptp_clock_time phase;
	struct ptp_clock_time period; /* Desired period, zero means disable. */
	unsigned int index;           /* Which channel to configure. */
	unsigned int flags;
	union {
		 * The "on" time of the signal.
		 * Must be lower than the period.
		 * Valid only if (flags & PTP_PEROUT_DUTY_CYCLE) is set.
		struct ptp_clock_time on;
		/* Reserved for future use. */
		unsigned int rsv[4];

There is also an API to select pins, with ptp_pin_function,

You can produce a signal with any duty cycle that you wish.  No
support for inverted output, but you could add it if it is important
to you.
