Overvoltage protection and brightness mode are currently hardcoded
as 29V and disabled in the driver. Make these configurable via DT.

This v4 moves the exponential brightness mode to the back of the series
as per Pavel's request:

  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-next/20200106103233.GA32426@amd/T/#m93270a9bf10b88e060f4e4cf5701c527476de985

The end result is identical and i've tested everything still works when
dropping the last to patches and checked compiltion via

  git rebase -i ... -exec 'make ... Image dtbs'

Patches are against linux-leds-next.

Changes from v3
- Move exponential mode patches to the back of the series
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-next/20200106103233.GA32426@amd/T/#m93270a9bf10b88e060f4e4cf5701c527476de985
- Add Rob's Reviewed-by:, thanks!

Changes from v2
- As per review comment from Pavel Machek
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/20191226100615.GA4033@amd/T/#u
  - Use default value in DT example
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/20191226100842.GC4033@amd/T/#u
  - Use uppercase LED in commit message
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/20191226101336.GD4033@amd/T/#u
  - Fix typo in commit message
  - Use correct return value when checking if property is present
  - Fold in
    https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/20191226101419.GE4033@amd/T/#t
- Add Acked-By's from Pavel Machek, thanks!

Changes from v1
- As per review comments by Dan Murphy
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/3d66b07d-b4c5-43e6-4378-d63cc84b8d43@ti.com/
  - Split commits per propoerty
  - Add new properties to DT example too
  - Drop dev_dbg() statements
  - ovp: fix 21V value parsing
  - ovp: Set correct default value if DT parsing fails
- As per review comments by Pavel Machek
  https://lore.kernel.org/linux-leds/20191221191515.GF32732@amd/
  - Fix defaults (which is 29V)
  - Use uV as Unit for ovp property
- Change property name to 'ti,ovp-microvolt' to make it shorter
- Honor led-max-microamp to not exceed the maximum led current

The current is given by the formular from page 12 of
https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm36922.pdf. We use this to limit the
led's max_brightness using the led-max-microamp DT property.

The formula for the lm36923 is identical according to the data sheet.

This moves lm3692x_init so it can be used from
lm3692x_brightness_set. Rename to lm3692_leds_enable to pair up
with lm3692x_leds_disable. No functional change.

Otherwise there's a noticeable glow even with brightness 0. Also
turning off the regulator can save additional power.

This allows to select exponential brightness mode instead of the default
linear mode.

Brightness mode is currently hardcoded as linear in the driver. Make
exponential mode configurable via DT.

Thank you. Applied 1-4 (with some reformatting of changelog, and
led->LED).

Exponential mode:

We should decide if LEDs should be linear or not. Most LEDs are linear
now, and we may want to make it part of the API. Additional advantage
is that linear is "well defined". It is actually quite important for
RGB LEDs, because you get wrong colors otherwise.

(Non-linear can have advantages, too... like needing less bits.)

So, my suggestion is to document LEDs as linear, and leave
exponential->linear conversion to someone else.

Best regards,

									Pavel

That would mean doing a conversion in the kernel that can be done by the
chip. Would exposing non-linearity like in
/sys/class/backlight/<backlight>/scale be an option?
