Actually after taking closer look, it turns out that
the patch [0] applies cleanly only to 4.14.

4.9 requires also the patch :

eb1610b4c273 ("led: core: Fix blink_brightness setting race")

3.18 and 4.4 shouldn't have the issue since it was introduced
along with LED_BLINK_SW flag added in 4.7.

Thanks,
Jacek Anaszewski
