Subject[PATCH] leds: use led_brightness_set in led_trigger_event
Fix led_trigger_event() to use led_brightness_set() instead of
led_set_brightness(), so that any pending blink timer is stopped before
setting the new brightness value. Without this fix LED status may be
overridden by a pending timer.

This allows a trigger to use a mix of led_trigger_event(),
led_trigger_blink() and led_trigger_blink_oneshot() without races.

Hi Bryan,

I found this one while working on another patch but I think it's also needed by
other drivers which mixes led_trigger_blink() and led_trigger_event(), such as

Without this a led don't stop blinking as it should when calling

Should not cause any harm on other drivers.

(I'm starting to find the whole led_set_brightness/led_brightness_set thing a
bit confusing BTW...)
