Stop misleading people. No _users_ are using Android on mainline
kernel, as there is not a single Android phone supported by mainline
kernel.

Ok. I'm sorry commit 61701df363310a5cbd95e3e1638baa9526e42c9b pushed
your libhardware into wrong direction, but that is exactly what
happened.

LED subsystem is not suitable for vibrations. We have input subsystem
for that, it is handling vibrations for 10+ years, and for example
Nokia N900 cellphone (which is supported by mainline) uses them.

Please fix libhardware accordingly.

Thank you,
Pavel
