I'll copy then the description of pattern.

In general pattern has trigger specific format. For pattern-trigger it
would look like "0 1000 255 1000". For timer trigger it would be just
a single number (period for blinks). Quite similar for the oneshot
trigger. I can change it to "led-pattern" (or maybe
"led-default-pattern" to match "linux,default-trigger" property?) and
document that the pattern itself is trigger specific
