With the new generic pwm framework and the pwm-atmel driver using it, we
don't need leds-atmel-pwm or atmel-pwm-bl anymore. However, a few boards
are still using those:


Some other avr32 boards are compiling it as a module but don't seem to
make any use of it.

I will take care of the mach-at91 boards and I can test on those. I can
do the same for the avr32 boards but I won't be able to test (only
to compile). Is anyone of you interested in testing those changes ?

I couldn't reach the initial authors of those files...

Could we simply remove the driver from the avr32 boards ? I'm under the
impression that they don't get much interest anyway, since april 2009,
I only see tree wide changes and I can't believe they didn't get broken
a way or another.
