Yes, that seems to be correct. You are only the third person using
gpio-led with blinking, aside from two uses in s3c24xx, and they
don't support DT either yet.

One way to solve it would be to add a blink function to gpiolib so
that the gpio-led driver can access it through a common wrapper
and we can make the orion_gpio_set_blink() function a pointer in
the gpio_chip structure rather than an export from
arch/arm/plat-orion/gpio.c. I've put a few people on Cc that might
have an opion on this.
