+Kernel driver for lp5523
+========================
+
+* National Semiconductor LP5523 led driver chip

+Description
+-----------
+LP5523 can drive up to 9 channels. Leds can be controlled directly via
+the led class control interface.
+The name of each channel is configurable in the platform data - name and label.
+There are three options to make the channel name.
+
+a) Define the 'name' in the platform data
+To make specific channel name, then use 'name' platform data.
+/sys/class/leds/R1 (name: 'R1')
+/sys/class/leds/B1 (name: 'B1')
+
+b) Use the 'label' with no 'name' field
+For one device name with channel number, then use 'label'.
+/sys/class/leds/RGB:channelN (label: 'RGB', N: 0 ~ 8)
+
+c) Default
+If both fields are NULL, 'lp5523' is used by default.
+/sys/class/leds/lp5523:channelN (N: 0 ~ 8)
+
+LP5523 has the internal program memory for running various LED patterns.
+For the details, please refer to 'firmware' section in leds-lp55xx.txt
+
+Selftest uses always the current from the platform data.
+
+Each channel contains led current settings.
+/sys/class/leds/lp5523:channel2/led_current - RW
+/sys/class/leds/lp5523:channel2/max_current - RO
+Format: 10x mA i.e 10 means 1.0 mA
+
+Example platform data:
+
+Note - chan_nr can have values between 0 and 8.
