I can make max_brightness default to 1 if not set by the LED driver.

But the LP50xx has brightness controls so setting max_brightness from the driver should over ride
the max of 1 in the upper level.

For devices that do not support brightness as a separate control we can create a file called
max_brightness_<color> that defines the max that a specific color can be set to. If max_brightness
is set to 1 then create max_brightness_<color>. If max_brightness > 1 then do not create the files.

I don't think we have fully vetted the brightness-model yet so I prefer to omit
it and possibly introduce that later.
