I might have over-though the issue a bit in the past ;) But I think I am
happy with the current behavior, it separates input events and leds and
just says that you can select what tgrigges led state change. And you
shoudl still be able to do:

echo "kbd-ctrlllock" > /sys/..../input22::caps-lock/trigger
echo "heartbit" > /sys/..../input22::num-lock/trigger
echo "kbd-numlock" > /sys/..../input22::scroll-lock/trigger

But you can't say that pressing CapsLock on keyboard1 should light up
ScrollLock led on keyboard2, nor do we want it I think. If such control
is truly needed userspace can take over and managed leds as it sees fit,
like X does.

I can do either "num_lock - kbd-num-lock" or "numlock - kbd-numlock"
with slight preference to the 1st. What is your preference?

Right, I will change it to 0 and led->max_brightness (which I will set
to 1).

Yes, we want LED sysfs show correct result if state is altered via
EV_LED/LED_* event. Basically the led bit state is the source of truth

Fair enough, will change.
