Hmmm. Jacek, all the triggers that work with the macro
LED_INIT_DEFAULT_TRIGGER are oneshot, timer and pattern.
If this macro is set, they all call pattern_init function where they
read led-pattern from fwnode.

But there is no device tree in Linux sources using this property.
In fact the command
git grep led-pattern
yields only 2 files:
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/common.yaml
drivers/leds/led-core.c

What is the purpose if no device tree uses this property? Is this used
from other fwnode sources, like acpi or efi?

The reason why I am asking this is that the `led-pattern` property in
device tree goes against the principle of device tree, that it
shouldn't set settings settable from userspace, only describe the
devices on the system and how they are connected to each other.

This is the same reason why multi-CPU DSA proposals which proposed to
set mappings between CPU ports and user ports were rejected...
