Subject[PATCH v2 0/1] platform/x86: asus-wmi: add support for ASUS screenpad
Date
Adds support for the screenpad(-plus) found on a few ASUS laptops that have a main 16:9 or 16:10 screen and a shorter screen below the main but above the keyboard.
The support consists of:
- On off control
- Setting brightness from 0-255

There are some small quirks with this device when considering only the raw WMI methods:
1. The Off method can only switch the device off
2. Changing the brightness turns the device back on
3. To turn the device back on the brightness must be > 1
4. When the device is off the brightness can't be changed (so it is stored by the driver if device is off).
5. Booting with a value of 0 brightness (retained by bios) means the bios will set a value of > 0, < 15 which is far too dim and was unexpected by testers. The compromise was to set the brightness to 60 which is a usable brightness if the module init brightness was under 15.
6. When the device is off it is "unplugged"

All of the above points are addressed within the patch to create a good user experience and keep within user expectations.

Changelog:
- V2
- Complete refactor to use as a backlight device
