This updated version is working as advertised. I'm not seeing any
led trigger in your patch, does this mean that built-in ones are enough?

leds are more outputs than inputs imho. From the current list of udebs,
creating a new one sounds a little bit cleaner. Moreover one may need
more stuff later, like new led module or trigger. There are traces of a
beeper udeb so if we had a udeb like this one, I don't understand why we
wouldn't have a leds udeb.
In the case I commit the patch, is there a bug asking to add support for
this udeb into d-i or do you intend to do it ?
