Please refer to patch:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/8664831/ and
https://android.googlesource.com/platform%2Fhardware%2Flibhardware/+/61701df363310a5cbd95e3e1638baa9526e42c9b

I don't think currently there are drivers in the mainline using it
yet, the reason being most of the Android devices are still on 4.4
kernel which still uses the legacy timed_output device.
