There is include/dt-bindings/leds/common.h with LED_FUNCTION_*

The choice for "status" was because of

>> /* Miscelleaus functions. Use functions above if you can. */

And those known names do not really come with an explanation of their
meaning. Names like "bluetooth" seem obvious, but "activity" or
"indicator" leave a lot of room for speculation.

The choice in numbers was inspired by labels on the box, which i wanted
to reflect in some way.
