SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] leds: add sgm3140 driver
Hi!

That's pinephone, right?

I don't quite see how this is supposed to work.

So.. "activate flash" will turn the LED on in very bright mode, then
put it back to previous brightness after a timeout?

What happens if some kind of malware does flash_strobe every 300msec?

Actually, LED flash drivers are getting quite common. Having common
code (so we could just say this is led flash, register it to both v4l
and LED) might be quite interesting.

Unfortunately, some LED flashes also have integrated red LED for
indication, further complicating stuff.

I would not mind "flash" drivers going to separate directory.

Umm. So this cancels running strobe?

And this does not return to previous brightness.

Do we want to provide the "strobe" functionality through sysfs at all?
Should we make it v4l-only, and independend of the LED stuff?

Best regards,
Pavel
