[PATCH] Enable backlight when trigger is activated
Configuring backlight trigger from dts results in backlight off during
boot. Machine looks dead upon boot, which is not good.

Fix that by enabling LED on trigger activation.

Hi Pavel,

The commit log is lacking the proper "leds: triggers: ".

Also...

This looks fishy.

Maybe you should use a default-state = "keep" instead? (and you'll have
to support it in the LED driver).

That'll give you proper "don't touch the LED if it was turned on" behavior,
which is what you seem to want.

Regards,
Eze

Actually no, that's not what I want. LED should go on if the display
is active, as soon as trigger is activated.

Unfortunately, I have see no good way to tell if the display is
active (and display is usually active when trigger is activated).

Thanks,
Pavel

default-state DT property can be also set to "on"
(see Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/common.txt).

You could make use of LED_INIT_DEFAULT_TRIGGER flag and
parse DT property in the activate op. Similar approach has been
applied e.g. in ledtrig-pattern.c.

Ok, thanks for the hint, that could work. (I thought we were using
default trigger to set the LED "on").

Now...this gives me option of 0% or 100% brightness, while best would
be 10% brightness.... but I guess we can live with that ;-).

Yes, except that it does not work with all drivers :-(. In particular,
it does not work with lm3532.

We should really move more of the device tree parsing into core, so
that there's one place to fix...

Right. We could have something similar to led_get_default_pattern().
led_get_default_state() ?
