The Holtek HT16K33 LED controller is not only used for driving
dot-matrix displays, but also for driving segment displays.

Document compatible values for the Adafruit 7-segment[1] and
14-segment[2] FeatherWing expansion boards with red displays.  According
to the schematics, all other Adafruit 7-segment and 14-segment display
backpack and FeatherWing expansion boards (including bare boards and
boards fitted with displays) are compatible with these two boards.
Add a "color" property to support the different color variants.

Alternatives I considered:
  1. Document the attached display type in a child node.
     I.e. specify segment type, number of characters, and wiring.
     Especially the latter would become really complex, due to the sheer
     amount of possible wiring combinations.
     Using this method, you also loose the ability to just connect a
     display to an i2c bus, and instantiate the device from sysfs,
     without using DT:

	echo adafruit,3130 0x70 > /sys/class/i2c/i2c-adapter/.../new_device

  2. Do not use the "color" property, but document all Adafruit
     7-segment and 14-segment display backpack and FeatherWing expansion
     boards.
     This would lead to a myriad of compatible values:

'refresh-rate-hz' is still a required property for the dot-matrix / 
fbdev setup.
If it can no longer be listed here than maybe its nice to mention that 
it's required
somewhere else (in it's description?).
Rob?
