This series makes it possible for the LED core to manage the power supply
of a LED. It uses the regulator API to disable/enable the power if when the
LED is turned on/off.
This is especially useful in situations where the LED driver/controller is
not supplying the power.

While at it, throw in a fix for led_set_brightness_sync() so that it can
work with drivers that don't provide brightness_set_blocking()

changes in v3:
- reword device-tree description
- reword commit log
- remove regulator updates from functions used in atomic context. If the
  regulator must be updated, it is defered to a workqueue.
- Fix led_set_brightness_sync() to work with the non-blocking function
  __led_set_brightness()

changes in v2:
- use devm_regulator_get_optional() to avoid using the dummy regulator and
  do some unnecessary work

  leds: Make led_set_brightness_sync() also use __led_set_brightness()
