Does it actually work like that on hardware?

Is it supposed to support "normal" RGB colors as seen on monitors?

Because 100% PWM on all channels does not result in white on hardware
I have.

We support maximum brightness > 255, so space separated is certainly
better option than this.

But...

I believe we should have a reasonable design before we do something
like this. There's no guarantee someone will not use lp50xx with just
the white LEDs for example. How will this work? Plus existing hardware
already uses three separate LEDs for RGB LED. Why not provide same
interface?

(Oh and don't try to say "sysfs is slow", without numbers).

Thanks,
Pavel
