Add a small note that makes explicit that properties named 'backlight'
contain phandles to backlight nodes.

This is needed so that we can automatically extract dependencies on
backlight devices by assuming that a property with that name contains a
phandle to such a device.

Changes in v2:
- Document that consumers of backlight devices can use the 'backlight'
  property to hold a phandle to the backlight device.

+Specifying backlight information for devices
+============================================
+
+Backlight user nodes
+--------------------
+
+Nodes such as display panels that refer to backlight devices can do so by simply having a property named 'backlight' that contains a phandle to a backlight node.
+
+Example:
+
+	backlight: backlight {
+		compatible = "gpio-backlight";
+		gpios = <&gpio3 4 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
+	};
+
+	[...]
+
+	panel: panel {
+		compatible = "cptt,claa101wb01";
+
+		backlight = <&backlight>;
+	};
