I had a sleepless night about this. I felt something is wrong with this.
I investigated a bit:
- for the kobject_uevent_env line git blame found this commit 552c02e3e7cfe
("pwm: Send a uevent on the pwmchip device upon channel sysfs
(un)export")
- the commit message explicitly mentions my use case! (udev event to
change permissions of exported pwm)
- git log says the commit right before is this one: commit c289d6625237
("Revert "pwm: Set class for exported channels in sysfs""). This is
the commit, that reverts the previous addition of the pwmchip class
right as is to the pwm. The one that had the sysfs name clash.

I must have done something horribly wrong. I tried again and now I can
get this udev change event. I don't know what I did wrong. The event is
not filtered, because this is sent on behalf of the parent that had the
class attached right from the start. This is my mistake. I am very sorry
for the noise.
I think best is now to keep everything as is, right ?

Regards,
Lars
