Simon, what if we refactored the driver to use fwnode API instead of OF
API? Then if it is impossible for you to write DTS for that device,
instead of platform data you could implement your device via swnode
fwnodes. :)

static const struct property_entry entries[] = {
PROPERTY_ENTRY_STRING("compatible", "lacie,ns2-leds"),

Look at
search for PROPERTY_ENTRY.

I am willing to work on this with you, but I would really like to rid
the LED drivers of platform data.
