Subject[PATCH v3 3/8] Documentation: dts: Documentation entry to explain how to use PWM FAN as a cooling device
Date
Explanation of several properties, which allow PWM fan working as a cooling
device, have been embraced in this commit.

Signed-off-by: Lukasz Majewski <l.majewski@samsung.com>

Changes for v2:
- Rename cooling-pwm-values to cooling-levels
- Remove default-pulse-width property and stick to default hwmon policy
Changes for v3:
- Changing commit title from "hwmon: dts: Doc:" to "Documentation: dts"
- Remove unnecessary properties
- Set maximal cooling level to 230 instead of 255

Example:

+ cooling-levels = <0 102 170 230>;
