I was kind of expecting this objection. I added this module parameter
since it suits my use case where I always run the display at the lowest
possible contrast. With this module parameter I can specify this need
at module load time and I do not need udev or to touch the backlight
controls manually every time the driver is loaded. I see that this is
probably a (too) weak argument, so if nobody complains I will remove
this patch for the next round.
