If they are h/w controlled, then why are they in DT?

What makes this linux specific?

Unless you're going to make this h/w specific, then it probably should 
just be dropped. 

The phy schema will need:

leds:
  type: object
  $ref: /schemas/leds/hw-controlled-leds.yaml#

How is this linux specific? It sounds device specific. Your choice is 
make this a device specific property with device specific values or come 
up with generic modes.

Perhaps 'function' should be expanded.

Reading the description of LED_FUNCTION_STATUS doesn't align with how 
you are using it. Think of it as user alert/notification.

This is deprecated in favor of 'function'.
