Subject: [PATCH v3 105/108] pwm: Ensure a struct pwm has the same lifetime as its pwm_chip

It's required to not free the memory underlying a requested PWM
while a consumer still has a reference to it. While currently a pwm_chip
doesn't life long enough in all cases, linking the struct pwm to the
pwm_chip results in the right lifetime as soon as the pwmchip is living
long enough. This happens with the following commits.

Note this is a breaking change for all pwm drivers that don't use
pwmchip_alloc().
