Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me.

New pwm driver (patch 04/11 : "pwm: mediatek: allocate the clks array
dynamically") can support different variants with different number of
PWMs by the new property <num-pwms>

For example:
1. Use "num-pwms" = <2> and assign clocks pwm1, pwm2 for mt7622
2. Use "num-pwms" = <6> and assign clocks pwm1, pwm2, pwm3, pwm4, pwm5,
pwm6 for mt7622.

If we just as easily derive the number of PWMs from the specific
compatible string in this document:

- "pwm1-6": the six per PWM clocks for mt7622

This looks like all "pwm1", "pwm2", "pwm3", "pwm4", "pwm5", "pwm6" is
required property in DT, It doesn't make sense.

So we removed those descriptions and added

- "pwm1-N": the PWM clocks for each channel


But the max number of clocks from the compatible string are still
important information that should be provide in this document.


What do you think of this?

- "pwm1-N": per PWM clocks for mt2712, the max number of PWM channels
is 8

- "pwm1-N": per PWM clocks for mt7622, the max number of PWM channels
is 6

- "pwm1-N": per PWM clocks for mt7623, the max number of PWM channels
is 5

where N starting from 1 to the maximum number of PWM channels
- num-pwms: the number of PWM channels.


Thanks
Best Regards
Sam
