While working on my other series related to gpio-backlight[1] I noticed
that we could simplify the driver if we made the only user of platform
data use GPIO lookups and device properties. This series tries to do

The first patch adds all necessary data structures to ecovec24. Patch
2/7 unifies much of the code for both pdata and non-pdata cases. Patches
3-4/7 remove unused platform data fields. Last three patches contain
additional improvements for the GPIO backlight driver while we're already
modifying it.

I don't have access to this HW but hopefully this works. Only compile

v1 -> v2:
- rebased on top of v5.3-rc1 and adjusted to the recent changes from Andy
- added additional two patches with minor improvements

v2 -> v3:
- in patch 7/7: used initializers to set values for pdata and dev local vars

Bartosz Golaszewski (7):
  sh: ecovec24: add additional properties to the backlight device
  backlight: gpio: simplify the platform data handling
  sh: ecovec24: don't set unused fields in platform data
  backlight: gpio: remove unused fields from platform data
  backlight: gpio: remove dev from struct gpio_backlight
  backlight: gpio: remove def_value from struct gpio_backlight
  backlight: gpio: use a helper variable for &pdev->dev
