    SubjectACPI: ibm-acpi: fix initial status of backlight device
    The brightness class core does not update the initial status of
    the device's brightness at register time. Do it by ourselves
    before we register the class device.

    Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <>
    Cc: Richard Purdie <>

    NOTE: This patch needs an ACK from Richard Purdie before it can be merged,
    as he might want to change the backlight class code instead.
