Subject: LED backlight on Droid 4 and others

Hi!

It would be good to get LED backlight to work in clean way for 5.6
kernel.

As far as I can see, these are neccessary (but not enough; it does not
work for me): lm3532 changes to register LED with of node, plus device
tree changes for droid 4, and these generic changes:

    backlight: add led-backlight driver
    
    This patch adds a led-backlight driver (led_bl), which is similar to
    pwm_bl except the driver uses a LED class driver to adjust the
    brightness in the HW. Multiple LEDs can be used for a single backlight.

    leds: Add managed API to get a LED from a device driver
    
    If the LED is acquired by a consumer device with devm_led_get(), it is
    automatically released when the device is detached.

    leds: Add of_led_get() and led_put()
    
    This patch adds basic support for a kernel driver to get a LED device.
    This will be used by the led-backlight driver.
    
    Only OF version is implemented for now, and the behavior is similar to
    PWM's of_pwm_get() and pwm_put().

[If you have an idea what else is needed, it would be welcome; it
works for me in development tree but not in tree I'd like to
upstream.]

Lee, would you be willing to take "backlight: add led-backlight
driver"? Would it help if I got "leds: Add managed API to get a LED
from a device driver" and "leds: Add of_led_get() and led_put()" into
for_next tree of the LED subsystem?

It is kind of important as, well, phone without screen looks pretty
much dead, and same issue hits Droid 4 and Librem 5 phones at least...

Best regards,
									Pavel
