I still have the same concern that I believe I already mentioned a while
ago: how do we reconcile the LED control via triggers with LED control
done through event devices? Currently, as far as I can see, they will be
clashing with each other. I.e. if I remap my capslock led to be the new
shiftlock and then userspace writes EV_LED/LED_CAPSL it would light up
my new "shift lock", right?

Also I wonder if we really need to have the multiplexing (VT-level) leds
in addition to per-device ones.

Thanks.
