SubjectRe: [PWM PATCH 3/5] Expunge old Atmel PWMC driver, replacing it with one that conforms to the PWM API

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.
