This patch adds driver support for the eQEP (enhanced Quadrature Encoder Pulse)
module within each of the PWMSS units in the AM335x. The eQEP module is used for
hardware decoding of rotrary encoders, motor encoders etc.

Because the PWMSS module includes several components some of the existing code in
the pwm driver could be reused. To make this common I have added a pwmss.h header
and moved some of the pwmss specific defines and enum to this file. The pwmss.c
file contains a refactored (simplified) version of the clock configuration
method that was previously in the pwm.c file. The pwmss_module_clk_config will
now be shared by both the pwm and eqep drivers (and eventually the ecap driver if
that is ever added).

The approach taken with the qep.h header was to move some of the qep specific
defines from the am335x.h header to this file. They are specific to the qep
function and would likely never be referenced by anything other than this driver.
Doing this keeps these definitions with the driver code and reduces clutter in
am335x.h header.

The driver supports two primary modes of operation. A polled mode (which is the
default mode), and an interrupt event driven mode.

This patch includes the following revisions after feedback from Chris Johns:
 - improved documentation
 - addition of void* user argument to interrupt callback
 - addition of position value arg to interrupt callback
