Yes, so the max_brightness should be updated basing on current
brightness-model. For LEDn_BRIGHTNESS of LP50xx we could have
"hw" or maybe even better just "lp50xx-linear" and "lp50xx-logarithmic"
- I just forgot about that capability of the device.

Right. We will need dedicated max_brightness for each color.
They should be placed also in the colors directory, next to the color
files.

We need to start from something. It will give better overview of the
whole idea.
