SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 12/12] led: bd71828: Support LED outputs on ROHM BD71828 PMIC
Hi!

That's really quite sad, is it?

All the effort and all we got is ... one working LED. Because hardware
does not allow you to control both LEDs...

...and we don't even have support selecting if the LED should be sw or
hw controlled in the mainline, yet...

Best regards,
Pavel
