I'll implement that then.

I have already written some yesterday, will post them with my v1 :)

This is documented at
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/media/video-interfaces.txt:

- flash-leds: An array of phandles, each referring to a flash LED, a sub-node
of the LED driver device node.

Without referencing the flash device in a camera node, the v4l2 controls won't
even show up from what I saw.
The binding is apparently only used in omap3-n9 and omap3-n950 currently; only
phones have flash leds normally and the phones that are currently in mainline
Linux don't have camera support yet.

Regards
Luca
