+The leds-blinkm driver supports the devices of the BlinkM family.
+
+They are RGB-LED modules driven by a (AT)tiny microcontroller and
+communicate through I2C. The default address of these modules is
+0x09 but this can be changed through a command. By this you could
+dasy-chain up to 127 BlinkMs on an I2C bus.
+
+The device accepts RGB and HSB color values through separate commands.
+Also you can store blinking sequences as "scripts" in
+the controller and run them. Also fading is an option.
+
+The interface this driver provides is 2-fold:
+
+a) LED class interface for use with triggers
+############################################
+
+The registration follows the scheme:
+blinkm-<i2c-bus-nr>-<i2c-device-nr>-<color>
+
+$ ls -h /sys/class/leds/blinkm-6-*
+/sys/class/leds/blinkm-6-9-blue:
+brightness device max_brightness power subsystem trigger uevent
+
+/sys/class/leds/blinkm-6-9-green:
+brightness device max_brightness power subsystem trigger uevent
+
+/sys/class/leds/blinkm-6-9-red:
+brightness device max_brightness power subsystem trigger uevent
+
+(same is /sys/bus/i2c/devices/6-0009/leds)
+
+We can control the colors separated into red, green and blue and
+assign triggers on each color.
+
+E.g.:
+
+$ cat blinkm-6-9-blue/brightness
+05
+
+$ echo 200 > blinkm-6-9-blue/brightness
+$
+
+$ modprobe ledtrig-heartbeat
+$ echo heartbeat > blinkm-6-9-green/trigger
+$
+
+
+b) Sysfs group to control rgb, fade, hsb, scripts ...
+#####################################################
+
+This extended interface is available as folder blinkm
+in the sysfs folder of the I2C device.
+E.g. below /sys/bus/i2c/devices/6-0009/blinkm
+
+$ ls -h /sys/bus/i2c/devices/6-0009/blinkm/
+blue green red test
+
+Currently supported is just setting red, green, blue
+and a test sequence.
+
+E.g.:
+
+$ cat *
+00
+00
+00
+#Write into test to start test sequence!#
+
+$ echo 1 > test
+$
+
+$ echo 255 > red
+$

+Kernel driver for lm3556
+========================
+
+*Texas Instrument:
+ 1.5 A Synchronous Boost LED Flash Driver w/ High-Side Current Source
+* Datasheet: http://www.national.com/ds/LM/LM3556.pdf
+
+Authors:
+ Daniel Jeong
+ Contact:Daniel Jeong(daniel.jeong-at-ti.com, gshark.jeong-at-gmail.com)
+
+Description
+-----------
+There are 3 functions in LM3556, Flash, Torch and Indicator.
+
+FLASH MODE
+In Flash Mode, the LED current source(LED) provides 16 target current levels
+from 93.75 mA to 1500 mA.The Flash currents are adjusted via the CURRENT
+CONTROL REGISTER(0x09).Flash mode is activated by the ENABLE REGISTER(0x0A),
+or by pulling the STROBE pin HIGH.
+LM3556 Flash can be controlled through sys/class/leds/flash/brightness file
+* if STROBE pin is enabled, below example control brightness only, and
+ON / OFF will be controlled by STROBE pin.
+
+Flash Example:
+OFF : #echo 0 > sys/class/leds/flash/brightness
+93.75 mA: #echo 1 > sys/class/leds/flash/brightness
+... .....
+1500 mA: #echo 16 > sys/class/leds/flash/brightness
+
+TORCH MODE
+In Torch Mode, the current source(LED) is programmed via the CURRENT CONTROL
+REGISTER(0x09).Torch Mode is activated by the ENABLE REGISTER(0x0A) or by the
+hardware TORCH input.
+LM3556 torch can be controlled through sys/class/leds/torch/brightness file.
+* if TORCH pin is enabled, below example control brightness only,
+and ON / OFF will be controlled by TORCH pin.
+
+Torch Example:
+OFF : #echo 0 > sys/class/leds/torch/brightness
+46.88 mA: #echo 1 > sys/class/leds/torch/brightness
+... .....
+375 mA : #echo 8 > sys/class/leds/torch/brightness
+
+INDICATOR MODE
+Indicator pattern can be set through sys/class/leds/indicator/pattern file,
+and 4 patterns are pre-defined in indicator_pattern array.
+According to N-lank, Pulse time and N Period values, different pattern wiill
+be generated.If you want new patterns for your own device, change
+indicator_pattern array with your own values and INDIC_PATTERN_SIZE.
+Please refer datasheet for more detail about N-Blank, Pulse time and N Period.
+
+Indicator pattern example:
+pattern 0: #echo 0 > sys/class/leds/indicator/pattern
+....
+pattern 3: #echo 3 > sys/class/leds/indicator/pattern
+
+Indicator brightness can be controlled through
+sys/class/leds/indicator/brightness file.
+
+Example:
+OFF : #echo 0 > sys/class/leds/indicator/brightness
+5.86 mA : #echo 1 > sys/class/leds/indicator/brightness
+........
+46.875mA : #echo 8 > sys/class/leds/indicator/brightness
+
+Notes
+-----
+Driver expects it is registered using the i2c_board_info mechanism.
+To register the chip at address 0x63 on specific adapter, set the platform data
+according to include/linux/platform_data/leds-lm3556.h, set the i2c board info
+
+Example:
+ static struct i2c_board_info __initdata board_i2c_ch4[] = {
+ {
+ I2C_BOARD_INFO(LM3556_NAME, 0x63),
+ .platform_data = &lm3556_pdata,
+ },
+ };
+
+and register it in the platform init function
+
+Example:
+ board_register_i2c_bus(4, 400,
+ board_i2c_ch4, ARRAY_SIZE(board_i2c_ch4));

+One-shot LED Trigger
+====================
+
+This is a LED trigger useful for signaling the user of an event where there are
+no clear trap points to put standard led-on and led-off settings. Using this
+trigger, the application needs only to signal the trigger when an event has
+happened, than the trigger turns the LED on and than keeps it off for a
+specified amount of time.
+
+This trigger is meant to be usable both for sporadic and dense events. In the
+first case, the trigger produces a clear single controlled blink for each
+event, while in the latter it keeps blinking at constant rate, as to signal
+that the events are arriving continuously.
+
+A one-shot LED only stays in a constant state when there are no events. An
+additional "invert" property specifies if the LED has to stay off (normal) or
+on (inverted) when not rearmed.
+
+The trigger can be activated from user space on led class devices as shown
+below:
+
+ echo oneshot > trigger
+
+This adds the following sysfs attributes to the LED:
+
+ delay_on - specifies for how many milliseconds the LED has to stay at
+ LED_FULL brightness after it has been armed.
+ Default to 100 ms.
+
+ delay_off - specifies for how many milliseconds the LED has to stay at
+ LED_OFF brightness after it has been armed.
+ Default to 100 ms.
+
+ invert - reverse the blink logic. If set to 0 (default) blink on for delay_on
+ ms, then blink off for delay_off ms, leaving the LED normally off. If
+ set to 1, blink off for delay_off ms, then blink on for delay_on ms,
+ leaving the LED normally on.
+ Setting this value also immediately change the LED state.
+
+ shot - write any non-empty string to signal an events, this starts a blink
+ sequence if not already running.
+
+Example use-case: network devices, initialization:
+
+ echo oneshot > trigger # set trigger for this led
+ echo 33 > delay_on # blink at 1 / (33 + 33) Hz on continuous traffic
+ echo 33 > delay_off
+
+interface goes up:
+
+ echo 1 > invert # set led as normally-on, turn the led on
+
+packet received/transmitted:
+
+ echo 1 > shot # led starts blinking, ignored if already blinking
+
+interface goes down
+
+ echo 0 > invert # set led as normally-off, turn the led off
