It was of course a mental shortcut. The value to write should be
calculated by transforming the formula given next to the register
documentation:

11111 = 29.8 mA
0.8mA steps, FS = 5mA + code * 0.8 mA

code is here the [0x22 + bank_offset] register value.

Effectively, the formula to calculate the register value basing
on led-max-microamp value should be:

FS = led-max-microamp - 5000 / 800

E.g. for 20.2 mA:

FS = (20200 - 5000) / 800 = 19

for 29.8 mA:

FS = (29800 - 5000) / 800 = 31

for 5 mA:

FS = (5000 - 5000) / 800 = 0

From the above min, max and step values for led-max-microamp
are 5000, 29800 and 800 respectively. Please correct DT documentation
accordingly.
