The reason for not having a function at the moment is that I took a
look at include/dt-bindings/leds/common.h and could not find any
function that could reasonably apply. This basically controls a RGB
connector on the motherboard which serves no particular function - you
can plug a RGB fan or anything else you want and control it in any
fashion. Is there a function that applies to this use-case?
