SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/4] doc: dt: pwm: add binding for ChromeOS EC PWM
Instead of using device tree, assuming you have firmware control,
another way could be to add a firmware feature:
for instance, there is one EC_FEATURE_PWM_FAN, the fan PWM, one for
the keyboard lightning as well. (see num ec_feature_code)
By adding one more, you let cros_ec_dev load the platform driver for
you, it works even if the machine does not use device tree.
