I must say I'm not a big fan of this change.Was I?
It adds a bunch of code to the LED core and gives small
functionality in a reward. It may also influence maximum
software blinking rate, so I'd rather avoid calling
regulator_enable/disable when timer trigger is set.
It will of course require more code.
Since AFAIR Pavel was original proponent of this change then
I'd like to see his opinion before we move on to discussing
possible improvements to this patch.
Okay, this series looks quite confusing to me. First, 1/3 looks
"interesting" (would have to analyze it way more).
Second, 3/3... So we have a LED driver _and_ a regulator? So yes, the
chip driving a LED is usually ... voltage/current regulator. What is
second regulator doing there? Is that a common setup?
