strobe_get is optional - you can leave it uninitialized if there is no
obvious way to get strobe status.

Regarding faults - I see you have FLASH_FAULT_DETECT but have no
information on its impact whatsoever. Usually devices report the faults
by settings some register bits and then we can map those errors to
LED flash framework generic errors.

You need a V4L2 media device driver with which this driver would
register a V4L2 flash LED sub-device. Such a device is usually
implemented for platform ISP devices. Provided it is present in the
mainline you would have to associate this driver DT node with the
media device DT node. Then you can test the V4L2 Flash control with
v4l2-ctl or yavta user space tools.

Let's skip the V4L2 support for now - it can be added later, if needed.
