This is exactly how I submitted the code.

We are now aligned. I can change the led-sources to the TI specific if there are no further objections.
In doing this I can eliminate the ti,control-bank property.

OK

One last question I am going to add the LP5036 and 30 which have the same technology but slightly different register maps.
Should I rename the driver to LP5036.c as the 30, 24 and 18 would technically be subsets?
