I'm not sure if this is the right direction. I actually have no problem
with a single driver that registers itself with multiple interfaces (ie.
GPIO and PWM) if it makes sense for it to do so. I suspec that a lot of
the multifunction device drivers break things up more than is strictly
necessary.

I'll still apply this if you think it is the right direction, but I
wanted to throw that though out there for consideration.
