There are little USB-audio devices supporting the LED control, so we
haven't had any chance for LED class for USB-audio.

At most, we may create LED class devices for some HD-audio (usually
driven via exotic verbs or GPIO over HD-audio), but I wouldn't go in
that direction; it'll need too make things more complex than the
direct hook as of now.
