Sorry, this one will need more work.

When did Rob acknowledge this? I do not remember that mail & quick
google does not find it.

I still don't like the fact that it is using different binding from
other similar chips. It for example replaces "ramp-up-msec" with

This is certainly wrong:

+Optional properties if ALS mode is used:
+	  - ti,als-vmin - Minimum ALS voltage defined in Volts
+	  - ti,als-vmax - Maximum ALS voltage defined in Volts
+	  Per the data sheet the max ALS voltage is 2V and the min is

...but milivolts (or microvolts?) make sense there, and clearly
milivolts are used because 2000V is way out of range.:

+	  ti,als-vmin = <0>;
+	  ti,als-vmax = <2000>;


+Required child properties:
+	- ti,led-mode : Defines if the LED strings are manually controlled or
+			if the LED strings are controlled by the ALS.
+			       0x00 - LED strings are I2C controlled via full scale brightness control register
+        		  	  0x01 - LED strings are ALS controlled

Dunno. Normally we'd have "ti,automatic-led-mode", and if it was not
present, we'd default to manual, no? (Also "led-mode" is a bit too
generic. ti,als-enabled would be better description).

Plus, I'd kind of expect ALS enabled/disabled to be runtime controled,
not from the device tree.

Best regards,
