O.K, so it is using the diode property of a Light Emitting Diode, to
support two colours.

Maybe multi-colour is too far. Just support bi-colour via two gpios.
Still, it is not so simple. As you said, the led class does not give
too good an abstraction. I guess the best you can do is that when you
turn one on, it automagically turns the other off.

Sure, we will take the DT file without support for the bicolour
LED. It can be added later.
