Subject[PATCH] backlight: gpio-backlight: Set power state instead of brightness at probe
Date
On a trivial gpio-backlight setup with a panel using the backlight but
no boot software to enable it beforehand, we fall in a case where the
backlight is disabled (not just blanked) and thus remains disabled when
the panel gets enabled.

Setting gbl->def_value via the device-tree prop allows enabling the
backlight in this situation, but it will be unblanked straight away,
in compliance with the binding. This does not work well when there was no
boot software to display something before, since we really need to unblank
by the time the panel is enabled, not before.

Resolve the situation by setting the brightness to 1 at probe and
managing the power state accordingly, a bit like it's done in
pwm-backlight.

Fixes: 8b770e3c9824 ("backlight: Add GPIO-based backlight driver")
