well you have a point there, but that comment also applies to pcf8574, for example.
I think this driver has potential for enhancement...
for example, if it's really used as a fan controller, the files could be
renamed as pwmx and then it would work with pwmconfig, etc.
So IMHO it was worth keeping.
