Revert "pwm: Set class for exported channels in sysfs"
This reverts commit 7e5d1fd75c3dde9fc10c4472b9368089d1b81d00 ("pwm: Set class for exported channels in sysfs") as it causes regression with multiple pwm chip[1], when exporting a pwm channel (echo X > export): - ABI (Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-class-pwm) states pwmX should be created in /sys/class/pwm/pwmchipN/pwmX - Reverted patch causes new entry to be also created directly in /sys/class/pwm/pwmX - 1st time, exporting pwmX will create an entry in /sys/class/pwm/pwmX - class attributes are added under pwmX folder, such as export, unexport npwm, symlinks. This is wrong as it belongs to pwmchipN. It may cause bad behavior and report wrong values. - when another export happens on another pwmchip, it can't be created (e.g. -EEXIST). This is causing the issue with multiple pwmchip. Example on stm32 (stm32429i-eval) platform: $ ls /sys/class/pwm pwmchip0 pwmchip4 $ cd /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/ $ echo 0 > export $ ls /sys/class/pwm pwm0 pwmchip0 pwmchip4 $ cd /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip4/ $ echo 0 > export sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/class/pwm/pwm0' ...Exception stack follows... This is also seen on other platform [2] [1] https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/25/713 [2] https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/25/447 Signed-off-by: Fabrice Gasnier <fabrice.gasnier@st.com> Tested-by: Gottfried Haider <gottfried.haider@gmail.com> Tested-by: Michal Vokáč <michal.vokac@ysoft.com> Signed-off-by: Thierry Reding <thierry.reding@gmail.com>
