mvebu build for wrt1900acv1 issue

RE: the non-functioning leds on wrt1900acv1 with DD/4.4 kernel.
Using this patch:

Still requires that you manually edit target/linux/generic/config-4.4 to set
And the build does not package the generated leds-tlc591xx.ko into the image file, so you have to take it to your device manually.

r48684 is a wrong fix to wrt1900ac-v1 led chip, the led kernel module get upstreamed from linux 4.3, but mvebu uses linux 4.1 by default for now, we should keep the previous leds-tlc59116 before migrating to linux 4.4.1 or other longterm versions. Add back tlc59116 and mark it only depends on linux 4.1 and older should be a real fix to this issue.

BTW, r48725 is the workaround to "fix" r48684, it can be reverted as well.

This is a real issue, the only thing in /sys/class/leds after flashing latest trunk yesterday (48736) is mamba:white:power

I confirm that if you don't build with 4.4.1 kernel version, leds does not work.
So default build, without any modification of the mvebu Makefile, is broken.
