1	Kernel driver pwm-fan
2	=====================
3	
4	This driver enables the use of a PWM module to drive a fan. It uses the
5	generic PWM interface thus it is hardware independent. It can be used on
6	many SoCs, as long as the SoC supplies a PWM line driver that exposes
7	the generic PWM API.

11	Description
12	-----------
13	
14	The driver implements a simple interface for driving a fan connected to
15	a PWM output. It uses the generic PWM interface, thus it can be used with
16	a range of SoCs. The driver exposes the fan to the user space through
17	the hwmon's sysfs interface.
