    Yes. In the datasheet, the peripheral is called the "PWMC" and so
    that's why the driver name changed. For consistency, I guess I should
    have named the file atmel-pwmc.c as well. Finally, I find it easier to
    type file names with dashes rather than underscores. :)

    There are platform changes necessary, to register and use the devices.
    The driver API is different from the previous code, so there are changes
    there as well. Functionally, however, the new stuff is a superset of
    what the previous driver provided.
