Oh yes, you're right. I was confusing the new enable_gpio field in
pwm_bl's platform data with some other field in a custom data structure.

One minor point though:

>>> + if (bl_data->enable_gpio) + samsung_bl_data->enable_gpio =
>>> bl_data->enable_gpio;

That assumes that enable_gpio==0 means "none", whereas you've gone to
great pains in the rest of the series to allow 0 to be a valid GPIO
ID. right now, the default value of samsung_bl_data->enable_gpio is
-1, and if !bl_data->enable_gpio, that value won't be propagated across.
