Hmm? There is brightness file (with brightness_set{_blocking} op) from
LED class and flash_brightness file (with flash_brightness_set op) from
LED class flash.

I've only now realized that you're not using flash_brightness_set op for
the "strobe_node" in your driver. I assume that you overlooked it.
Please don't introduce "strobe_brightness" naming convention - we
already have "flash_brightness" for that.

It wasn't openly available at least at the time when I had an access
to it.

But - please look at the functions max77693_set_torch_current() and
max77693_set_flash_current(). The device has separate registers
for torch and flash brightnesses.
