Subject[PATCH 1/2] backlight: pwm_bl: Enable PWM before switching regulator on
Date
When the PWM is re-enabled after being switched off, the backlight may
flicker due to the backlight power being switched on while the PWM is
still unconfigured. This is especially true if the PWM output is
active low (assuming that the PWM output is low when the PWM is not
enabled).
Configure the PWM before switching backlight power on to prevent this.
