Agreed, we should let users of the PWM take care of resuming the PWM in
the state and at the point in time that they require so. PWM users will
also likely do a pwm_disable() during their suspend implementation, so
doing this again in a PWM ->suspend() is not necessary, even if perhaps
harmless.

So this leaves only the pinctrl_pm_select_sleep_state() call. That seems
fine, but I'm not sure that that's currently guaranteed to work. I think
we may need to implement device link support in the PWM framework to
guarantee the proper suspend/resume sequencing. Otherwise you may end up
in a situation where the PWM is actually suspended before the user and
glitch the pins before the user has a chance to disable the PWM.

I think it'd be fine to merge the driver change here first before we add
device link support if this works for you. Just mentioning the issue
here in case you ever run into it.
