I was going to send the ones I did but they are pretty dirty from a code 
stand point.

Besides I would expect the framework to change which then changes the 
driver code.

I think this would be fine at least there is a documented equation. I 
don't think we need to document the code.

Why?  This just caches the intensity of each colored LED.  Then the 
actual brightness is calculated only when the brightness file is updated.

This would be an automatic update of the LED and that is not the intent 
of the intensity file per the documentation.

The user should be able to set the colors x number of times before the 
LED group is actually updated with the brightness.

Nack to the available_colors.  I did this originally and the issue is 
that the driver sets the bits in available_colors and no matter what the 
order is in the DT file the indexing is always red green and blue per 
the LED_COLORS array.  The framework has no legitimate way to know the 
order in which the colors were added.

This posed an issue with the LP55xx code as the RGB was defined with 
different colors assigned to different channels.  Green was 0 blue was 2 
and red was 6.  So the driver would have to map the channels to the 
colors.  In forcing the device driver to set the color index it can then 
map the output channels itself.  The framework should not care what 
channel is for what color.  In either case the device driver will need 
to store the color index mapped to the channel output but having the 
index to color being a 1-1 mapping made the code much simpler for the 
device driver.

Basically it turned out to be a simple for loop that just stored both 
channel and color as opposed to having to re-map the colors to indexes.

So for the LP55xx I can get an index of green, blue red and that maps to 
the channels per the DT.  I don't think the framework should enforce a 
standard color index array ordering.

If we use the available_colors we don't even need the color_index and we 
can just pass the available_colors to the user space as a u32 and let 
the user space figure what colors are available. Which means the user 
space would assume the order per the LED_COLORS array.
