First off, you might want to send it to the author of the driver, and
the maintainer of the subsystem, and the mailing list for that area.
That can be found using the scripts/get_maintainer.pl tool:
$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --file drivers/leds/leds-lp5523.c
Richard Purdie <rpurdie at rpsys.net> (maintainer:LED SUBSYSTEM)
linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org (open list)

This line, and this changelog comment needs to go down further below:

The stuff above with the signed off-by line goes right here.
And don't include the git patch in your message, use 'git send-email' to
send the patch to the right people, that will format it properly and
keep the '>From' stuff from being in there and requiring the maintainer
to edit the email before they can apply it.
And yes, this does look like a valid bugfix, nice job.
So, care to fix the format of this up and send it off to Richard?
Hope this helps,
