This allows software using libwebsockets to simply specify a
libwebsockets dependency. Otherwise a specific variant (or set of them)
would need to be specified.

Karl, please don't drop mailing list when replying.

It's true PKG_NAME is set to libwebsockets, but actual packages are called:

Is this a problem to have the same name in PKG_NAME and PROVIDES? I
saw this in openvpn and px5g packages and I think it is working fine.
I believe my testing of this libwebsockets patch also didn't show any

Jo can you comment on this, please?

Yes, this currently leads to undefined (broken) behaviour.
