It looks different from what I meant, i.e. that devicename
segment shouldn't be present in the label, but derived
from the parent DT node name.

This is however to be decided whether it wouldn't be better to leave
the decision to the driver on how to obtain devicename  - from parent
DT node or from the driver hardcoded string. Some LED class drivers
prefer the latter way, so if their parent node name differs a bit from
the string they currently use for devicename, then the resulting
LED class device name will change after switching to using this
new API. In order to avoid that we would have to modify related
DT node names in *.dts files, which would make unnecessary noise.

Since it may take a while to agree on the final semantics
of this new API, especially after my recent patch [0], I propose
to put below piece of code directly in the driver:


ret = of_property_read_string(child_node, "label", &name);
if (!ret)
    snprintf(led->label, sizeof(led->label), "%s:%s",
			np->name, name)
else
    snprintf(led->label, sizeof(led->label),
             "%s::%s", np->name, name)

Please note that "::" means leaving colour section blank,
because we don't know the LED colour if label DT property was not
provided.
