IIUC current LED code doesn't allow me to sleep (without driver specific
workqueue). And powernv_led_set() call will sleep. Hence I think it won't work.

I did a quick test without your patch. It doesn't seems to be working.

Alternatively we can revert the changes (add driver specific workqueue now) and
later when your changes goes to upstream, I can fix my code.
