Subject[PATCH v3 2/4] dt-bindings: pwm-backlight: add a num-interpolation-steps property.
Date
The num-interpolated-steps property specifies the number of
interpolated steps between each value of brightness-level table. This is
useful for high resolution PWMs to not have to list out every possible
value in the brightness-level array.

Changes since v1:
- Add an example with a small but realistic curve. Suggested by Rob and
Daniel
