leds: add output inversion option to backlight trigger
Janusz Krzysztofik [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:59:20 +0000 (16:59 -0800)]
Extend the LED backlight tirgger driver with an option that allows for
inverting the trigger output polarity.

With the invertion option provided, I (ab)use the backlight trigger for
driving a LED that indicates LCD display blank condtition on my Amstrad
Delta videophone.  Since the machine has no dedicated power LED, it was
not possible to distinguish if the display was blanked, or the machine was
turned off, without touching it.

The invert sysfs control is patterned after a similiar function of the GPIO
trigger driver.
