  LightPath Dignostics framework on PowerNV platform

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  == Comment: #0 - VASANT HEGDE <hegdevasant@xxxxxxxxxx> - 2015-09-11 05:56:57 ==
  IBM x, i and p systems have Service indicators (LED) that help identify components (Guiding Light) and also to indicate a component in error (Light Path). Currently, Linux only has a couple of commands that cater to LightPath services, but not close to what is expected. The work involved is to deliver a LightPath framework that will help customer to identify a hardware component in error.

      powerpc/powernv: Add OPAL interfaces for accessing and modifying system LED states
      This patch registers the following two new OPAL interfaces calls
      for the platform LED subsystem. With the help of these new OPAL calls,
      the kernel will be able to get or set the state of various individual
      LEDs on the system at any given location code which is passed through
      the LED specific device tree nodes.

          (2) OPAL_LEDS_SET_INDICATOR     opal_leds_set_ind

      powerpc/powernv: Create LED platform device
      This patch adds platform devices for leds. Also export LED related
      OPAL API's so that led driver can use these APIs.

      leds/powernv: Add driver for PowerNV platform
      This patch implements LED driver for PowerNV platform using the existing
      generic LED class framework.

      powerpc/powernv: Fix mis-merge of OPAL support for LEDS driver
      When I merged the OPAL support for the powernv LEDS driver I missed a
      This is slightly modified from the original patch, as the original added
      code to opal-api.h which is not in the skiboot version, which is
      Instead those values are moved into the driver, which is the only place
      they are used.

      powerpc/powernv: Enable LEDS support
      Commit 84ad6e5c added LEDS support for PowerNV platform. Lets
      update ppc64_defconfig to pick LEDS driver.
      PowerNV LEDS driver looks for "/ibm,opal/leds" node in device
      tree and loads if this node exists. Hence added it as 'm'.
      Also note that powernv LEDS driver needs NEW_LEDS and LEDS_CLASS
      as well. Hence added them to config file.
      mpe: Also add them to pseries_defconfig, which is currently also used
      for powernv systems.

  All these patches went into current merge window (4.3).. Let me know if you want me to backport those patches.
