Hi All,

The following implements a generic pwm framework and adds a user
for it. I already posted this series back in January. Based on
the comments I received I added some details about the motivation
for adding such a framework and not using the led or hwmon framework
to patch 1/2.
I also added some documentation to Documentation/pwm.txt.

This patch does not change the user API for PWMs, in particular
it does not enforce any sleep/nonsleep context to the PWM users.
The patch merely puts the status quo into a core wrapper to be able
to register multiple PWM drivers in the system. Improvements to
the API can still be made later once we have at least a place
in the kernel to collect the existing PWM drivers.


The following changes since commit b0af8dfdd67699e25083478c63eedef2e72ebd85:

  Linux 3.0-rc5 (2011-06-27 19:12:22 -0700)
