+SiFive PWM controller
+Unlike most other PWM controllers, the SiFive PWM controller currently only
+supports one period for all channels in the PWM. This is set globally in DTS.
+The period also has significant restrictions on the values it can achieve,
+which the driver rounds to the nearest achievable frequency.
+Required properties:
+- compatible: should be one of
+	"sifive,fu540-c000-pwm0","sifive,pwm0".
+	PWM controller is HiFive Unleashed specific chip which warrants a
+	specific compatible string. The second string is kept for backward
+	compatibility until a firmware update with latest compatible string.
+- reg: physical base address and length of the controller's registers
+- clocks: The frequency the controller runs at
+- #pwm-cells: Should be 2.
+  The first cell is the PWM channel number
+  The second cell is the PWM polarity
+- sifive,approx-period: the driver will get as close to this period as it can
+- interrupts: one interrupt per PWM channel (currently unused in the driver)
+pwm:  pwm at 10020000 {
+	compatible = "sifive,fu540-c000-pwm0","sifive,pwm0";
+	reg = <0x0 0x10020000 0x0 0x1000>;
+	clocks = <&tlclk>;
+	interrupt-parent = <&plic>;
+	interrupts = <42 43 44 45>;
+	#pwm-cells = <2>;
+	sifive,approx-period = <1000000>;
