Subject: [RFC] add pwmlib support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel

Hi all,

While implementing just another pwm driver I thought it's time to implement
generic pwm support. The following series adds drivers/pwm/pwmlib.c and
a i.MX23/28 pwm driver which serves as a usage example for pwmlib. The
code is inspired by gpiolib support and tested using the backlight pwm
driver by Eric Miao.

Currently the pwm_request, pwm_add, pwm_remove and pwm_free operations are
protected with a single mutex wherea the pwm_enable, pwm_disable and
pwm_config operations are unlocked. It is assumed that the owners of the
pwm handle the serialization of the pwm accesses. This may not be enough,
so
i'd like to discuss the locking (and type of locking) here.

I Cced the people working with PWMs in the kernel in the hope that they can
give input on what's missing / wrong in this implementation

Sascha
