I can't say that I am 100% sure because I didn't find all the
datasheets of all the panels supported in the kernel. But all the
datasheets I checked specifies this sequence as valid. In general I
think that doesn't really matter, but I know that at least the
B116XTN02 panel requires enable first the PWM, wait 10ms and then
enable BL_EN to avoid garbage. So the other way around is not valid
for this panel. That's the reason for this patchset.

If anyone knows a panel that says the contrary, please let me know and
I'll try to rework the patches to satisfy both requirements.
