[PATCH v2 0/3] led: ledtrig-transient: add support for hrtimer


These patch series add the LED_BRIGHTNESS_FAST flag support for
ledtrig-transient to use hrtimer so that platforms with high-resolution timer
support can have better accuracy in the trigger duration timing. The need for
this support is driven by the fact that Android has removed the timed_ouput [1]
and is now using led-trigger for handling vibrator control which requires the
timer to be accurate up to a millisecond. However, this flag support would also
allow hrtimer to co-exist with the ktimer without causing warning to the
existing drivers [2].

Changes from v1 to v2:
- Convert all the bit shifting flag in leds.h to use the BIT macro.
- Removed inline modifiers for the timer helper function.
