Subject[PATCH 0/4] Add a generic driver for LED-based backlight
Date
This series aims to add a led-backlight driver, similar to pwm-backlight,
but using a LED class device underneath.

A few years ago (2015), Tomi Valkeinen posted a series implementing a
backlight driver on top of a LED device:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/7293991/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/7294001/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/7293981/

The discussion stopped because Tomi lacked the time to work on it.

This series takes it from there and implements the binding that was
discussed in https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/7293991/. In this new
binding the backlight device is a child of the LED controller instead of
being another platform device that uses a phandle to reference a LED.

leds: of: create a child device if the LED node contains a
"compatible" string
