This series started with a RFC back on 5 April 2017 "extend PWM
framework to support PWM modes". The continuous work starting with v2 of
this series on January 12, 2018.

Then Claudiu tried to address all comments up to v4 which didn't have
any more reviews. He posted a v5 without comments since May 22, 2018.
This series is basically a resent of the v5 (as said in the $subject).

We would like to know what is preventing this series to be included in
the PWM sub-system. Note that if some issue still remain with it, we are
ready to help to solve them.

Without feedback from you side, we fear that we would miss a merge
window again for no obvious reason (DT part is Acked by Rob: patch 5/9).

Best regards,
Nicolas
