I'm pretty sure this will be needed for about every chip that can drive
multiple LEDs. Shouldn't it be documented in the generic documentation?


Well... "fled_id" is not exactly suitable name. On other busses, it
would be "reg = <1>"?

I'm ok with "reg". This scheme is used for pca963x.txt and is described
as "number of LED line". We could define it similarly in the common.txt.
A device would have to specify the range of allowed values though.
I would add such a note to the generic binding.
