I think this is correct, but we may need additional patches. I notice
that INPUT_MAX8997_HAPTIC and INPUT_PWM_BEEPER have a dependency on
HAVE_PWM at the moment, so those two drivers become impossible
to select after your change.

There is also one use of HAVE_PWM outside of PXA, for ARCH_LPC32XX.
This one seems to have the same problem.

Finally, I have recently encountered a couple of drivers
the PWM interfaces but are missing a 'depends on PWM'. This is
strictly speaking a different problem, but we could try to solve
it at the same time.
