2019-07-25leds: core: Add support for composing LED class device namesJacek Anaszewski
Add generic support for composing LED class device name. The newly introduced led_compose_name() function composes device name according to either <color:function> or <devicename:color:function> pattern, depending on the configuration of initialization data. Backward compatibility with in-driver hard-coded LED class device names is assured thanks to the default_label and devicename properties of newly introduced struct led_init_data. In case none of the aforementioned properties was found, then, for OF nodes, the node name is adopted for LED class device name. At the occassion of amending the Documentation/leds/leds-class.txt unify spelling: colour -> color. Alongside these changes added is a new tool - tools/leds/ The tool allows retrieving details of a LED class device's parent device, which proves that using vendor or product name for devicename part of LED name doesn't convey any added value since that information had been already available in sysfs. The script performs also basic validation of a LED class device name.

2018-09-09Drop all 00-INDEX files from Documentation/Henrik Austad
This is a respin with a wider audience (all that get_maintainer returned) and I know this spams a *lot* of people. Not sure what would be the correct way, so my apologies for ruining your inbox. The 00-INDEX files are supposed to give a summary of all files present in a directory, but these files are horribly out of date and their usefulness is brought into question. Often a simple "ls" would reveal the same information as the filenames are generally quite descriptive as a short introduction to what the file covers (it should not surprise anyone what Documentation/sched/sched-design-CFS.txt covers) A few years back it was mentioned that these files were no longer really needed, and they have since then grown further out of date, so perhaps it is time to just throw them out. A short status yields the following _outdated_ 00-INDEX files, first counter is files listed in 00-INDEX but missing in the directory, last is files present but not listed in 00-INDEX. List of outdated 00-INDEX: Documentation: (4/10) Documentation/sysctl: (0/1) Documentation/timers: (1/0) Documentation/blockdev: (3/1) Documentation/w1/slaves: (0/1) Documentation/locking: (0/1) Documentation/devicetree: (0/5) Documentation/power: (1/1) Documentation/powerpc: (0/5) Documentation/arm: (1/0) Documentation/x86: (0/9) Documentation/x86/x86_64: (1/1) Documentation/scsi: (4/4) Documentation/filesystems: (2/9) Documentation/filesystems/nfs: (0/2) Documentation/cgroup-v1: (0/2) Documentation/kbuild: (0/4) Documentation/spi: (1/0) Documentation/virtual/kvm: (1/0) Documentation/scheduler: (0/2) Documentation/fb: (0/1) Documentation/block: (0/1) Documentation/networking: (6/37) Documentation/vm: (1/3) Then there are 364 subdirectories in Documentation/ with several files that are missing 00-INDEX alltogether (and another 120 with a single file and no 00-INDEX). I don't really have an opinion to whether or not we /should/ have 00-INDEX, but the above 00-INDEX should either be removed or be kept up to date. If we should keep the files, I can try to keep them updated, but I rather not if we just want to delete them anyway. As a starting point, remove all index-files and references to 00-INDEX and see where the discussion is going. Signed-off-by: Henrik Austad <> Acked-by: "Paul E.

2017-01-29leds: class: Add new optional brightness_hw_changed attributeHans de Goede
Some LEDs may have their brightness level changed autonomously (outside of kernel control) by hardware / firmware. This commit adds support for an optional brightness_hw_changed attribute to signal such changes to userspace (if a driver can detect them): What: /sys/class/leds/<led>/brightness_hw_changed Date: January 2017 KernelVersion: 4.11 Description: Last hardware set brightness level for this LED. Some LEDs may be changed autonomously by hardware/firmware. Only LEDs where this happens and the driver can detect this, will have this file. This file supports poll() to detect when the hardware changes the brightness. Reading this file will return the last brightness level set by the hardware, this may be different from the current brightness. Drivers which want to support this, simply add LED_BRIGHT_HW_CHANGED to their flags field and call led_classdev_notify_brightness_hw_changed() with the hardware set brightness when they detect a hardware / firmware triggered brightness change.

This driver creates a userspace leds driver similar to uinput. New LEDs are created by opening /dev/uleds and writing a uleds_user_dev struct. A new LED class device is registered with the name given in the struct. Reading will return a single byte that is the current brightness. The poll() syscall is also supported. It will be triggered whenever the brightness changes. Closing the file handle to /dev/uleds will remove the leds class device. Signed-off-by: David Lechner <> Signed-off-by: Jacek Anaszewski <>

2016-09-27usb: core: Introduce a USB port LED triggerRafał Miłecki
This commit adds a new trigger responsible for turning on LED when USB device gets connected to the selected USB port. This can can useful for various home routers that have USB port(s) and a proper LED telling user a device is connected. The trigger gets its documentation file but basically it just requires enabling it and selecting USB ports (e.g. echo 1 > ports/usb1-1). There was a long discussion on design of this driver. Its current state is a result of picking them most adjustable solution as others couldn't handle all cases. 1) It wasn't possible for the driver to register separated trigger for each USB port. Some physical USB ports are handled by more than one controller and so by more than one USB port. E.g. USB 2.0 physical port may be handled by OHCI's port and EHCI's port. It's also not possible to assign more than 1 trigger to a single LED and implementing such feature would be tricky due to syncing triggers and sysfs conflicts with old triggers. 2) Another idea was to register trigger per USB hub. This wouldn't allow handling devices with multiple USB LEDs and controllers (hubs) controlling more than 1 physical port. It's common for hubs to have few ports and each may have its own LED. This final trigger is highly flexible. It allows selecting any USB ports for any LED. It was also modified (comparing to the initial version) to allow choosing ports rather than having user /guess/ proper names. It was successfully tested on SmartRG SR400ac which has 3 USB LEDs, 2 physical ports and 3 controllers. It was noted USB subsystem already has usb-gadget and usb-host triggers but they are pretty trivial ones. They indicate activity only and can't have ports specified. In future it may be good idea to consider adding activity support to usbport as well. This should allow switching to this more generic driver and maybe marking old ones as obsolete. This can be implemented with another sysfs file for setting mode. The default mode wouldn't change so there won't be ABI breakage and so such feature can be safely implemented later. There was also an idea of supporting other devices (PCI, SDIO, etc.) but as this driver already contains some USB specific code (and will get more) these should be probably separated drivers (triggers).

2016-09-15leds: add driver for Mellanox systems LEDsVadim Pasternak
This makes it possible to create a set of LEDs for Mellanox systems: "msx6710", "msx6720", "msb7700", "msn2700", "msx1410", "msn2410", "msb7800", "msn2740", "msn2100". Driver obtains LED devices according to system configuration, provided through system DMI data, like mlxcpld:fan1:green, mlxcpld:fan1:red and creates devices in form: "devicename:colour:function". LED setting is controlled through on board CPLD Lattice device. For setting particular LED off, solid, blink: echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:status\:green/brightness echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:status\:green/brightness echo timer > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:status\:green/trigger On module probing all LEDs are set green, on removing - off. Last setting overwrites previous, f.e. sequence for changing LED from green - red - green: echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:psu\:green/brightness echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:psu\:red/brightness echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/mlxcpld\:psu\:green/brightness Note: LEDs cannot be turned on/off simultaneously.

2016-06-08leds: core: Fix brightness setting upon hardware blinking enabledTony Makkiel
Commit 76931edd54f8 ("leds: fix brightness changing when software blinking is active") changed the semantics of led_set_brightness() which according to the documentation should disable blinking upon any brightness setting. Moreover it made it different for soft blink case, where it was possible to change blink brightness, and for hardware blink case, where setting any brightness greater than 0 was ignored. While the change itself is against the documentation claims, it was driven also by the fact that timer trigger remained active after turning blinking off. Fixing that would have required major refactoring in the led-core, led-class, and led-triggers because of cyclic dependencies. Finally, it has been decided that allowing for brightness change during blinking is beneficial as it can be accomplished without disturbing blink rhythm. The change in brightness setting semantics will not affect existing LED class drivers that implement blink_set op thanks to the LED_BLINK_SW flag introduced by this patch. The flag state will be from now on checked in led_set_brightness() which will allow to distinguish between software and hardware blink mode. In the latter case the control will be passed directly to the drivers which apply their semantics on brightness set, which is disable the blinking in case of most such drivers. New drivers will apply new semantics and just change the brightness while hardware blinking is on, if possible. The issue was smuggled by subsequent LED core improvements, which modified the code that originally introduced the problem.

2015-06-11Input: export LEDs as class devices in sysfsSamuel Thibault
This change creates a new input handler called "leds" that exports LEDs on input devices as standard LED class devices in sysfs and allows controlling their state via sysfs or via any of the standard LED triggers. This allows to re-purpose and reassign LDEs on the keyboards to represent states other than the standard keyboard states (CapsLock, NumLock, etc). The old API of controlling input LEDs by writing into /dev/input/eventX devices is still present and will take precedence over accessing via LEDs subsystem (i.e. it may override state set by a trigger). If input device is "grabbed" then requests coming through LED subsystem will be ignored.

2014-01-27leds: lp5523: Support LED MUX configuration on running a patternMilo Kim
There are two ways to run a pattern in LP5523. One is using legacy sysfs files such as 'enginex_mode','enginex_load' and 'enginex_leds'. ('x' is from 1 to 3). Among them, 'enginex_leds' are used for selecting specific LED channel MUX. (MUX means which LEDs are used for running a pattern from LED 1 to 9.) The other way is using the firmware interface. In this mode, the default LED MUX strings are used. In other words, LED MUX is not configurable on the fly. This patch enables dynamic LED MUX configuration when the firmware is loaded. By accessing the sysfs file 'enginex_leds', the LED channels can be configured. To synchronize the operation mode, each engine mode should be set to 'LOAD'. The documentation is updated as well.

2013-08-26leds: support new LP8501 device - another LP55xx commonKim, Milo
LP8501 can drive up to 9 channels like LP5523. LEDs can be controlled directly via the I2C and programmable engines are supported. LP55xx common driver LP8501 is one of LP55xx family device, so LP55xx common code are used. Chip specific data is defined in the structure, 'lp55xx_device_config'. Differences between LP8501 and LP5523 Different register layout for LED output control and others. LP8501 specific feature for separate output power selection. LP8501 doesn't support external clock detection. Different programming engine data. LP8501 specific feature - output power selection Output channels are selected by power selection - Vout or Vdd. Separate power for VDD1-6 and VDD7-9 are available. It is configurable in the platform data. To support this feature, LP55xx DT structure and header are changed. Device tree binding is updated as well. LED pattern data Example pattern data is updated in the driver documentation. Signed-off-by: Milo Kim <> Signed-off-by: Bryan Wu <>
2013-04-01leds: lp55xx: configure the clock detectionKim, Milo
Now LP55xx provides automatic clock detection API, lp55xx_is_extclk_used(). The clock configuration can be done by the driver itself. (a) Concept The default value is set by each driver with clock selection. The internal clock selection bit is updated in case that the external clock is not detected or clock rate is not 32KHz. (b) Change on LP55xx platform data The clock configuration is done automatically, so no need to define 'update_config' in the platform side. Correlated information are removed in the documentations and header. (c) Definitions moved from header to driver files CONFIG register values are moved each driver, LP5521 and LP5562. Not necessary definitions are removed also. Signed-off-by: Milo(Woogyom) Kim <> Signed-off-by: Bryan Wu <>
2013-04-01leds: add new LP5562 LED driverKim, Milo
LP5562 can drive up to 4 channels, RGB and White. LEDs can be controlled directly via the led class control interface. LP55xx common driver LP5562 is one of LP55xx family device, so LP55xx common code are used. On the other hand, chip specific configuration is defined in the structure 'lp55xx_device_config' LED pattern data LP5562 has also internal program memory which is used for running various LED patterns. LP5562 driver supports the firmware interface and the predefined pattern data as well. LP5562 device attributes: 'led_pattern' and 'engine_mux' A 'led_pattern' is an index code which runs the predefined pattern data. And 'engine_mux' is updated with the firmware interface is activated. Detailed description has been updated in the documentation files, 'leds-lp55xx.txt' and 'leds-lp5562.txt'. Changes on the header file LP5562 configurable definitions are added. Pattern RGB data is fixed as constant value. (No side effect on other devices, LP5521 or LP5523.) ( remove redundant mutex_unlock().

2012-05-29leds: add new transient trigger for one shot timer activationShuah Khan
The leds timer trigger does not currently have an interface to activate a one shot timer. The current support allows for setting two timers, one for specifying how long a state to be on, and the second for how long the state to be off. The delay_on value specifies the time period an LED should stay in on state, followed by a delay_off value that specifies how long the LED should stay in off state. The on and off cycle repeats until the trigger gets deactivated. There is no provision for one time activation to implement features that require an on or off state to be held just once and then stay in the original state forever. Without one shot timer interface, user space can still use timer trigger to set a timer to hold a state, however when user space application crashes or goes away without deactivating the timer, the hardware will be left in that state permanently. As a specific example of this use-case, let's look at vibrate feature on phones. Vibrate function on phones is implemented using PWM pins on SoC or PMIC. There is a need to activate one shot timer to control the vibrate feature, to prevent user space crashes leaving the phone in vibrate mode permanently causing the battery to drain. This trigger exports three properties, activate, state, and duration When transient trigger is activated these properties are set to default values. - duration allows setting timer value in msecs. The initial value is 0. - activate allows activating and deactivating the timer specified by duration as needed. The initial and default value is 0. This will allow duration to be set after trigger activation. - state allows user to specify a transient state to be held for the specified duration.

2012-03-23drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: support led pattern dataKim, Milo
The lp5521 has autonomous operation mode without external control. Using lp5521_platform_data, various led patterns can be configurable. For supporting this feature, new functions and device attribute are added. Structure of lp5521_led_pattern: 3 channels are supported - red, green and blue. Pattern(s) of each channel and numbers of pattern(s) are defined in the pla= tform data. Pattern data are hexa codes which include pattern commands such like set pwm, wait, ramp up/down, branch and so on. Pattern mode functions: * lp5521_clear_program_memory Before running new led pattern, program memory should be cleared. * lp5521_write_program_memory Pattern data updated in the program memory via the i2c. * lp5521_get_pattern Get pattern from predefined in the platform data. * lp5521_run_led_pattern Stop current pattern or run new pattern. Transition time is required between different operation mode. Device attribute - 'led_pattern': To load specific led pattern, new device attribute is added. When the lp5521 driver is unloaded, stop current led pattern mode. Documentation updated : description about how to define the led patterns and example.
