I can give it a try. Since this is even newer territory for me than 
openwrt-devel, I would appreciate some guidance.

This is what I would do: Split this patch (1/4) into two. One for driver 
& Makefile, one for the device tree extension. Rebase onto 4.20-rcX. 
Submit both patches to: linux-leds; cc: linux-kernel; cc: devicetree.

Does that sound about right?

Thanks, Klaus
