Just to clarify:

For 4.14 below patches are chosen correctly:

[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 065/110] led: core: Fix brightness setting when
setting delay_off=0
[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 094/110] leds: core: Fix regression caused by
commit 2b83ff96f51d

For 4.9 both above patches are needed preceded by:

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

The issue the patch [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 065/110] fixes was
introduced in 4.7, and thus it should be removed from the series
for 3.18 and 4.4.

Best regards,
Jacek Anaszewski
