It only helps guarding against a maximum of 3 leds for WLED3, while
using string_len instead of an unintentional sizeof(u32) (resulting in
a fixed size of 4) is a different issue requiring a separate patch to
fix.

Would it help to reorder this patch before 1/10, and mention in patch
1/10 (then 2/10) that, besides properly using string_len instead of
hardcoded 4 (which causes wrong reads from DT on top of this), it relies
on the previous patch to prevent against an array longer than 3 for
WLED3?
