Subject: leds: wm831x-status: Request a REG resource

commit 61abeba5222895d6900b13115f5d8eba7988d7d6 upstream.

The wm831x-status driver was not converted to use a REG resource when they
were introduced and the rest of the wm831x drivers converted, causing it
to fail to probe due to requesting the wrong resource type.
