I just noticed this thread while cleaning up patchwork. I think I had
already mentioned in an earlier reply that in my opinion we should leave
PWM suspend/resume to users.

I'm totally fine if we add helpers to the PWM core to help with that
task. Maybe something like this would work:

void pwm_suspend(struct pwm_device *pwm)
{
pwm_get_state(pwm, &pwm->suspend);
pwm_disable(pwm);
}

void pwm_resume(struct pwm_device *pwm)
{
pwm_apply_state(pwm, &pwm->suspend);
}

Though, quite frankly, this is so trivial that drivers could just do
that themselves. Also, the helpers above aren't flexible at all with
respect to any special sequences the PWM might need to go through on
suspend. I suspect that this doesn't matter at all in most cases but
given how trivial they are we might as well just make drivers do it.
Also we don't burden users that don't care about suspend/resume with
the extra suspend state in struct pwm_device.
