We re-run our tests and I found 2 bugs, the first one is in meson_pwm_enable(),
only the channel A was setup, the fix is :

static void meson_pwm_enable(...)
- u32 value, clk_shift, clk_enable, enable;
+ u32 reg, value, clk_shift, clk_enable, enable;

switch (id) {
case 0:
[...]
+ reg = REG_PWM_A;
break;
case 1:
[...]
+ reg = REG_PWM_B;
break;
}
[...]
- writel(value, meson->base + REG_PWM_A);
+ writel(value, meson->base + reg);

The second bug is in probe(), I understand the point to allocate dynamically the channels
and attach them to each pwm chip, but when calling meson_pwm_init_channels() we get an OOPS
because meson->chip.pwms[i] are allocated in pwmchip_add().
Moving meson_pwm_init_channels() would fix this, but in case of a clk PROBE_DEFER, we would need
to remove back the pwmchip, which is a quite a bad design decision....

The smartest fix I found was to allocate channels in probe, init them them attach them after pwmchip_add():

static int meson_pwm_init_channels(..., struct meson_pwm_channel *channels)
{
+ struct meson_pwm_channel *channels;
[...]
- for (i = 0; i < meson->chip.npwm; i++) {
- struct pwm_device *pwm = &meson->chip.pwms[i];
- struct meson_pwm_channel *channel;
-
- channel = devm_kzalloc(dev, sizeof(*channel), GFP_KERNEL);
- if (!channel)
- return -ENOMEM;
+ if (!channels)
+ return -EINVAL;

+ for (i = 0; i < meson->chip.npwm; i++) {
[...]
+ memset(&channels[i], 0, sizeof(struct meson_pwm_channel));
[...]
//Rename "channel->" into "channels[i]."//
[...]
- pwm_set_chip_data(pwm, channel);
}

return 0;
}

+static void meson_pwm_add_channels_data(struct meson_pwm *meson,
+ struct meson_pwm_channel *channels)
+{
+ unsigned int i;
+
+ for (i = 0; i < meson->chip.npwm; i++)
+ pwm_set_chip_data(&meson->chip.pwms[i], &channels[i]);
+}

static int meson_pwm_probe(struct platform_device *pdev)
{
+ struct meson_pwm_channel *channels;
[...]
- err = meson_pwm_init_channels(meson);
- if (err < 0)
- return err;
-
meson->chip.dev = &pdev->dev;
[...]
meson->chip.of_pwm_n_cells = 3;

+ channels = devm_kmalloc_array(&pdev->dev, 2, sizeof(*meson),
+ GFP_KERNEL);
+ if (!channels)
+ return -ENOMEM;
+
+ err = meson_pwm_init_channels(meson, channels);
+ if (err < 0)
+ return err;
+
err = pwmchip_add(&meson->chip);
[...]
+ meson_pwm_add_channels_data(meson, channels);
+
platform_set_drvdata(pdev, meson);

return 0;
}

The fix driver is in a separate branch, rebased on your for-next :
https://github.com/superna9999/linux/tree/amlogic/v4.8/pwm-for-next

and in a signed tag I can transform in a pull request if needed :
https://github.com/superna9999/linux/releases/tag/amlogic/v4.8/pwm-for-next-for-v4
