First result on changes for this:

There has been a significant rework of the omap5.dtsi.

THis has changed the DTB definitions of timers1..4 and 9..12
to use ti,sysc-omap4-timer while timer5..8 are still
ti,omap5430-timer.

This seems to break dmtimer/pwm mode for timer9 which
we use for driving display backlight while timer8
for keyboard backlight still works.

Is there an upcoming patch not yet merged in 5.0-rc2 or
what makes the difference in 5.0 between timer8 and timer9?

PS: the symptom is that we don't even see a /sys/class/backlight
node for the display backlight [2].
