This commit moves the driver to drivers/pwm and converts it to the new
PWM framework.

Note: I'll take this through the PWM tree, but I'd like to have it
acknowledged by a few people who know the hardware and can actually
test whether this still works.

Did you create the patch using 'git format-patch -M'? It should
show the changes as a move plus changes rather than a file remove
and another file add.

The change to the common framework is of course very welcome,

Yeah, I forgot that... again. Sorry for that.

Pls include Arun on these patches, he'll know best if it'll work or
not.

I have one generic question: will this alter the layout of sysfs so we
need to change userspace? I had such issues before when moving
drivers to new busses...

Since this pwm framework is still a set of exported functions in a header file,
the file architecture doesn't really matter. 
Using this driver, either leds-pwm and backlight-pwm is used to register and
this is where actual registration happens(sysfs entry is created).

Thanks and Regards,
Arun R Murthy
