NXP LPC32xx SoCs have two simple independent PWM controllers with a single
output each, in this case there is no need to specify PWM channel argument
on client side, one cell for setting PWM output frequency is sufficient.

Another added to the description property 'clocks' has a standard meaning
of a controller supply clock, in the LPC32xx User's Manual the clock is
denoted as PWM1_CLK or PWM2_CLK clock.

This use of the cell is a bit odd as the period is s/w config and this 
would typically be a channel selection or such.

What if I want user specified/changed periods?

this is a classic PWM channel configuration property for PWM consumers
described in DT, for instance PWM frequency for display panel backlight
on boot.

I think >90% of PWM controllers with device tree bindings have this
argument in #pwm-cells, from bindings/pwm/pwm.txt :

    pwm-specifier typically encodes the chip-relative PWM number and
    the PWM period in nanoseconds.

You also may skim through phandle arguments of 'pwms' property,
commonly the second argument is the requested frequency.

In this particular case I just drop PWM channel number, because
the LPC32xx PWM controller has a single output channel.

The preset period still can be changed over sysfs in runtime.

Rob, have I managed to answer your questions?

If you accept my clarification, could you please ack the change?

Yes. Sorry for the delay. It's best to resend if you want to be sure I see it.
