Subject: [PATCH] platform/x86: fujitsu-laptop: use brightness_set_blocking for LED-setting callbacks

All LED-setting functions in fujitsu-laptop are currently assigned to
the brightness_set callback, which is incorrect because they can sleep
(due to their use of call_fext_func(), which in turn issues ACPI calls)
and the documentation (in include/linux/leds.h) clearly states they must
not.  Assign them to brightness_set_blocking instead and change them to
match the expected function prototype.

This change makes it possible to use Fujitsu-specific LEDs with "heavy"
triggers, like disk-activity or phy0rx.

Fixes: 3a407086090b ("fujitsu-laptop: Add BL power, LED control and radio state information")
Fixes: 4f62568c1fcf ("fujitsu-laptop: Support radio LED")
Fixes: d6b88f64b0d4 ("fujitsu-laptop: Add support for eco LED")

Even back in 2.6.29, when the first Fujitsu-specific LED was introduced,
the brightness_set callback was annotated with the following text: "Must
not sleep, use a workqueue if needed".  To make things easier for LED
drivers, the LED core introduced (in 3.19) brightness_set_sync, which
was later renamed to brightness_set_blocking (in 4.5).  It allows easy
use of brightness-setting callbacks that may sleep, which is exactly
what we need here.

Without this patch, here is a quick way to lock your system up within
seconds:

    # echo disk-activity > "/sys/class/leds/fujitsu::radio_led/trigger"
    # dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null bs=1M count=10000

Applying this patch allowed me to successfully perform the above stress
test without a visible influence on system stability on a Lifebook E744
with an SSD.

Two notes about the patch itself:

  - As fujitsu-laptop is already at odds with checkpatch rules, I
    decided to stick with its current coding style so that the
    functional changes introduced by this patch do not blend with
    changes related to coding style.

  - In logolamp_set(), returning the result of the second
    call_fext_func() call as the function return value is obviously
    pretty arbitrary, but nobody has cared about these return values at
    all since day one, so I decided to keep this patch simple.  I can
    submit another one which properly handles call_fext_func() failures
    in that function, if you think that would be helpful.
