Subject: [RFC] pwm: chip_data vs device_data

Hey Thierry, list,

While working on something in the pwm framework, I noticed that the void 
*data in the pwm_device struct is called chip_data. Why is it not called 
device_data, since it is the data associated with a PWM device, rather 
then the chip, and on that note, if it really is chip related data (thus 
covering the whole chip, not just the single pwm device) why is there no 
chip_data in pwm_chip?

Again, is this something worth my time to add a device_data and rename 
chip_data?
