Hello Pavel,

Thank you for the quick feedback and your detailed thoughts, appreciate
I'm totally agree with you, that matrix LED controllers should be
interpreted as display and it must be controlled as display from
userspace. But actually, AW20036 controller usage status is strongly
dependent from board PCB. In the our internal projects AW20036 controls
LEDs line. Each LED brightness/pattern/etc are managed from userspace
independently. From the current registers specification I can't imagine
that it's possible to develop display driver for that. All controller
features involve LED independent managing, like hardware patterns and
brightness setup. Therefore I suppose for AW20036 controller LED
subsystem is more suitable.
