Bryan,

I don't believe memory triggers allocate in their activate routine
should be converted to devm_kzalloc(). Based on my understanding, the
memory allocated using devm_kzalloc() us free'ed when driver is
detached. In the case of led triggers, driver stays registered while the
triggers it supports can be activated and deactivated many times. By
converting these allocations into devm_kzalloc()s could lead to memory
leaks. Please correct me if my understanding is incorrect.

If what I am saying makes sense, please take this as comment that is
applicable to all led triggers, not just this one.

Thanks,
-- Shuah
