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:
The discussion stopped because Tomi lacked the time to work on it.
changes in v10:
- Provide a YAML schema instead of text file for the documentation of the
LED backlight device-tree bindings.
- Add a short description of how the LED properties should be named in
the common LED binding documentation. (new patch)
- rename property "default-brightness-level" as "default-brightness",
following the majority here.
changes in v9:
- let to_of_node() check if the fwnode is actually a of_node
- add some checks in of_led_get()
- let dev_of_node() do the check about OF availabilty
- refactor led_bl_probe() to register a cleanup function with
devm_add_action_or_reset(). This simplifies the error handling (which
was not 100% done in v7) and allows to get rid of led_bl_remove()
changes in v8:
- use class_find_device_by_of_node() instead of class_find_device()
- renamed devm_led_get() as devm_of_led_get()
changes in v7:
- rebased on top of linux-leds/for-next
- populate the of_node member of the LED device if fwnode is a of_node
(this is a new patch and the first of the series).
- devm_led_get() works only when the device tree is used. Add a few checks
changes in v6:
- trim the list of included headers
- remove useless definition of BKL_FULL_BRIGHTNESS
changes in v5:
- removed LED brightness scaling
- disable sysfs the interface of the LEDs when used by the backlight device
changes in v4:
- fix dev_err() messages and commit logs following the advices of Pavel
- cosmetic changes (indents, getting rid of "? 1 : 0" in
changes in v3:
- dt binding: don't limit the brightness range to 0-255. Use the range of
the underlying LEDs. as a side-effect, all LEDs must now have the same
- driver: Adapt to dt binding update.
- driver: rework probe() for clarity and remove the remaining goto.
changes in v2:
- handle more than one LED.
- don't make the backlight device a child of the LED controller.
- make brightness-levels and default-brightness-level optional
- removed the option to use a GPIO enable.
- removed the option to use a regulator. It should be handled by the LED
- don't make any change to the LED core (not needed anymore)
Jean-Jacques Hiblot (4):
leds: populate the device's of_node
leds: Add managed API to get a LED from a device driver
dts-bindings: leds: Document the naming requirement for LED properties
dt-bindings: backlight: Add led-backlight binding
Tomi Valkeinen (2):
leds: Add of_led_get() and led_put()
backlight: add led-backlight driver
