Subject[PATCH] leds: core: Fix regression caused by commit 2b83ff96f51d
Commit 2b83ff96f51d ("led: core: Fix brightness setting when setting delay_off=0")
replaced del_timer_sync(&led_cdev->blink_timer) with led_stop_software_blink(),
which in addition to the former also clears LED_BLINK_SW flag.

The fact that the function clears also blink_delay_on and blink_delay_off
properties of struct led_classdev wasn't considered harmful but it turned out
to be so in case when pointer to one or both props is passed to led_blink_set()
like in the ledtrig-timer.c. In such cases zeroes are passed in delay_on and/or
delay_off arguments to led_blink_setup(), which results either in stopping the
software blinking or setting blinking frequency always to 1Hz.

Avoid using led_stop_software_blink() and add a single call required
to clear LED_BLINK_SW flag, which was the only required modification to
fix the original issue.
