My understanding is 'led-sources' means output channel rather than
control bank. Output channel is visible and intuitive - just output LED.
On the other hand, control banks works inside the silicon, LM3633.
I'm not sure other LED devices have control bank or not, but output
channel is common concept.

For this reason, I don't understand this LED configuration - one output
channel with multiple LED devices. LED child node should be matched with
led class device.
If three output channels are controlled by one control bank, then it
should be represented as below.

lvled-group-A {
led-sources = <0>, <1>, <2>;
led-max-microamp = <some value>;
}

Please let me know if I misunderstand.

Best regards,
Milo
