check_features supporting lightbar was introduced with crrev.com/c/263463
in 2015. It is present devices with lightbar like Pixel C and
backported to Pixel 2 (samus) with crrev.com/c/274047.
Remaining boards that have lightbar support and not check_features support are:
link
bolt (reference board for early samus).

Therefore, that solution is right. I will send a patch based on that
code snippet.
