Why do we need this header file?

If we really need to have a full intensity constant then shouldn't we
use LED_FULL directly.

This code looks broken.

For example led->max_brightness is 127 then the value this
function will pick values is in the interval 0..63 which is
wrong since we are not using the full range of the LED.

Similarly led->max_brightness is > 255 then we'll generate values
that are out-of-range
