Several things are going on in this patch, it needs to be split to
not hide the functional changes from the structural/renames.

Better to describe that this should be the "short" and "ovp" interrupts
in this property than in the interrupt-names.

You can't change unit on an existing property, that breaks any existing
dts using the qcom,pm8941-wled compatible.

These values could be described just as well in mA, so keep the original
unit - in particular since the boot-limit is in mA...

The existing users of qcom,pm8941-wled depends on this being in V, so
you can't change the unit. I suggest that you add a new "qcom,ovp-mv"
property and make the driver fall back to looking for qcom,ovp if that
isn't specified.

PS. This is a very good example of why it is a good idea to not
restructure and make changes at the same time - I almost missed this.

This was the number of strings actually used, so you can't turn this
into max number of strings supported. As we have different compatibles
for the different pmics this can be hard coded in the driver, based on
compatible, and qcom,num-strings can be kept as a special case of
qcom,enabled-strings (enabling string 0 through N).

I think it's better if you describe the enabled strings in an array, as
it makes the dts easier to read and write for humans.

Also I'm uncertain about the validity of these defaults, as it's not
that the defaults are 7 and 15 it's that if this property is not
specified all strings will be enabled and the auto calibration will kick
in to figure out the proper configuration.

It would be better to describe this as "absence of this property will
trigger auto calibration".

I don't like the idea of having the developer specifying
qcom,enabled-strings and then qcom,auto-string-detection just in case. I
think it's better to trust the developer when qcom,enabled-strings is
specified and if not use auto detection.

Having to change the existing example shows that you made non-backwards
compatible changes.

These renames are good, but needs to go in a separate commit (either
patch 1 or a new one), the current approach makes it impossible to
review the rest of this patch.


So, as the DT change is substantial that should be split in one patch
that change the structure, then one that adds the new properties, one
patch that renames pm8941 -> wled3 and finally one that adds wled4
support.
