pwm: Device tree support for PWM polarity
Add support for encoding PWM properties in bit encoded form with of_pwm_xlate_with_flags() function support. Platforms require platform specific PWM properties has to populate in 3rd cell of the pwm-specifier and PWM driver should also set .of_xlate support with this function. Currently PWM property polarity encoded in bit position 0 of the third cell in pwm-specifier.
