It's also ugly to not check it when you have it assigned.
We'll soon receive complaints from static checkers about pointless

I'd distinguish between cases when parsing failed,
and when property has not been provided.

if (fwnode_property_present(child, "led-max-microamp")) {
if (fwnode_property_read_u32(child, "led-max-microamp",
"Failed to parse led-max-microamp property\n")
} else {
led-max-microamp property is missing\n")
