Subject[RFC PATCH 0/1] Add generic inverted led triggers
This patch adds generic inverted LED triggers. With this patch applied
any trigger can be used with inverted brightness levels by appending
"-inverted" to the name of a trigger.

This is can be useful for devices that do not have dedicated LEDs for e.g.
disk activity indication. With this patch applied the power led can be set
to default-state = on and trigger = disk-activity-inverted. Then the led
will be on by default, indicating the power state of the device but it
will turn off briefly whenever there is disk activity.

I think dual-use of LEDs might come in handy for quite a few devices since
a lot of embedded boards and upcoming ARM based notebooks do only have one
or two LEDs.

Best regards,
