OK, this makes sense. I will have to think about this a little.

My main issue though is whether one "hw-control" trigger should be
registered via LED API and the specific mode should be chosen via
another sysfs file as in this RFC, or whether each HW control mode
should have its own trigger. The second solution would either result in
a lot of registered triggers or complicate LED API, though...
