Flash LED handling under Linux
Some LED devices provide two modes - torch and flash. In the LED subsystem
those modes are supported by LED class (see Documentation/leds/leds-class.txt)
and LED Flash class respectively. The torch mode related features are enabled
by default and the flash ones only if a driver declares it by setting
In order to enable the support for flash LEDs CONFIG_LEDS_CLASS_FLASH symbol
must be defined in the kernel config. A LED Flash class driver must be
registered in the LED subsystem with led_classdev_flash_register function.
Following sysfs attributes are exposed for controlling flash LED devices:
(see Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-class-led-flash)
- flash_brightness
- max_flash_brightness
- flash_timeout
- max_flash_timeout
- flash_strobe
- flash_fault
