I guess it is a matter of me "not seeing the forrest for the trees", but how
would a nested ifdef look like, as this would result in 3 possible results
when for CONFIG_OF first and then for one of the BACKLIGHT_CLASS defines?


Formatting wise, when applied both defined(CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_foo) parts
are exactly below each other, making it (hopefully) clear where the "or" is
part of. What would look better?


Thanks
