[RFC PATCH 00/15] pwm: add support for atomic update

This series adds support for atomic PWM update, or ITO, the capability
to update all the parameters of a PWM device (enabled/disabled, period,
duty and polarity) in one go.
This implementation is still experimental, and I may have missed some key
aspect, so any feedback are welcome.
Also note that I haven't protected the state update with any locking.
That's because the existing config does not protect against concurrent
access to a requested PWM device (see the pwm_config implementation).
I guess the PWM framework assume the user will implement the proper locking
scheme if it has to concurrently access the device.
The 5 first patches prepare the addition of the pwm_state concept, which
will be used to allow atomic updates.
The following patches introduce the pwm_state struct, initial state
retrieval and atomic update concepts.
Patches 12 and 13 are showing how one can implement the initial state
retrieval and atomic update features in a PWM driver (in this specific
case I implemented it in the rockchip driver).
The last 2 patches are making use of those changes to improve the
pwm-regulator driver (initializing the regulator state based on the
initial PWM state).
Boris Brezillon (15):
pwm: add the pwm_is_enabled() helper
pwm: fix pwm_get_period and pwm_get_duty_cycle prototypes
pwm: add pwm_get_polarity helper function
pwm: make use of pwm_get_xxx helpers where appropriate
pwm: introduce default period and polarity concepts
pwm: define a new pwm_state struct
pwm: move the enabled/disabled info to pwm_state struct
backlight: pwm_bl: remove useless call to pwm_set_period
pwm: declare a default PWM state
pwm: add the PWM initial state retrieval infra
pwm: add the core infrastructure to allow atomic update
pwm: rockchip: add initial state retrieval
pwm: rockchip: add support for atomic update
regulator: pwm: implement ->enable(), ->disable() and ->is_enabled
regulator: pwm: properly initialize the ->state field
