Yes the flash class may handle this and expose the brightness node but the HW has two different registers to set the
corresponding brightness so one set brightness node does not work.
There is no way to differentiate between the strobe brightness (register 4) and the torch brightness (register 3).

When the enable register is written the driver will read the corresponding register and set
the current for the LED.

This is why I separated out the strobe from the torch into 2 different LED nodes.

I cannot seem to find the data sheet on line for the max77693 so I cannot verify that the device only has
a single brightness register for both torch and strobe.

But see above. There is not a clean way to expose the torch/ir and strobe separately.
