AFAIR this approach (parent DT node name used for devicename ) was
incidentally applied in leds-as3645a.c. Soon after that we started
to use led-controller for parent DT name, according to Rob's request.

In the most of LED class drivers this is a child DT node which is used
for devicename, in case label is absent.

i2c_device_id can't be applied as a generic pattern, but only for I2C
hooked devices. Nonetheless since it allows to save few lines of code
in case of drivers supporting a family of chips we can use it.

We are going to get rid of a devicename section from LED class device
name soon anyway, since it is redundant.

Best regards,
