Indeed, I missed that sorry.

Just go for the earliest SoC that introduced that design. What was the
first SoC to use it?

Sure, I didn't mean to compare it to sun4i. What I meant was that as far
as these struct goes, the A133 and the R818 look to have the same PWM
controller. Just like the v833, v536 and R329.

If the PWM controllers are indeed identical across those SoCs, you can
just use two compatibles, one for the PWM with 9 channels (again, the
earliest SoC among the V833, v536 and r329), and one for the PWM with 16
channels.

None of those SoCs are supported at the moment in Linux though, so it
would make more sense to support them first before adding a new driver
for those SoCs, it's gonna be dead code otherwise.
