dm: led: Add a driver for GPIO-controlled LEDs

Add a simple driver which allows use of LEDs attached to GPIOs. The linux
device tree binding is used.

LEDs connected to GPIO lines
Required properties:
- compatible : should be "gpio-leds".
Each LED is represented as a sub-node of the gpio-leds device. Each
node's name represents the name of the corresponding LED.
LED sub-node properties:
- gpios : Should specify the LED's GPIO, see "gpios property" in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpio/gpio.txt. Active low LEDs should be
indicated using flags in the GPIO specifier.
- label : (optional)
see Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/common.txt
- linux,default-trigger : (optional)
see Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/common.txt
- default-state: (optional) The initial state of the LED. Valid
values are "on", "off", and "keep". If the LED is already on or off
and the default-state property is set the to same value, then no
glitch should be produced where the LED momentarily turns off (or
on). The "keep" setting will keep the LED at whatever its current
state is, without producing a glitch. The default is off if this
property is not present.

If this is acceptable and you have a need to use LEDs in SPL,
enable this option. You will need to enable device tree in SPL
for this to work.

Enable support for LEDs which are connected to GPIO lines. These
GPIOs may be on the SoC or some other device which provides GPIOs.
The GPIO driver must used driver model. LEDs are configured using
the device tree.
