This was recently discussed for the pwm-imx driver. And you can easily
support #pwm-cells = <2> and #pwm-cells = <3> with the same binding. So
you could start with #pwm-cells = <2>, leaving out .set_polarity() and
implement it later on, extending the binding in a backwards-compatible
way to support the polarity flag.
