Thank you for the explanation. So we have to keep your guards
but I would return -EBUSY instead of -EINVAL.

This would be also consistent with what
does in its v4l2_flash_s_ctrl(), case V4L2_CID_FLASH_STROBE - it returns
-EBUSY if __software_strobe_mode_inactive() returns false.

The advantage of V4L2 Flash interface is that it has LED_MODE that
can be set to torch or flash, but in LED subsystem we don't have
the counterpart.

Best regards,
