Well.. Generalizing for any number of leds would be nice -- because
hardware can do that. OTOH, if we do that, we'll not have a place
where to do "white-adjustment".

We normally don't do that. We'd either have a trigger for a single
MMC, or trigger of all the MMCs..

Well... I'm not sure if we _want_ to do triggers for
patterns. LED triggers change rather quickly (100 times a second?) so
doing them in kernel makes sense. Patterns take 10s of seconds, so we
do not need to handle them in kernel.

Thanks,
Pavel
