Some panels support backlight control over DP AUX channel using
VESA's standard backlight control interface.
Using new DRM eDP backlight helpers, add support to create and
register a backlight for those panels in drm_panel to simplify
the panel drivers.

The panel driver with access to "struct drm_dp_aux" can create and
register a backlight device using following code snippet in its
probe() function:

	err = drm_panel_dp_aux_backlight(panel, aux);
	if (err)
		return err;

Then drm_panel will handle backlight_(enable|disable) calls
similar to the case when drm_panel_of_backlight() is used.

Currently, we are not supporting one feature where the source
device can combine the backlight brightness levels set through
DP AUX and the BL_PWM_DIM eDP connector pin. Since it's not
required for the basic backlight controls, it can be added later.

The backlight_get_brightness() used above has the backlight_is_blank() 
check and returns brightness 0 when the backlight_is_blank(bd) is true.
So, instead of calling backlight_is_blank(bd), we are checking 
brightness value here.
I took the reference from pwm_backlight_update_status() of the PWM 
backlight driver (drivers/video/backlight/pwm_bl.c)

Yes, we can change this _if_ condition to use backlight_is_blank(bd), as 
this is an inline function, and is more meaningful.
With this, there would be one change in the behavior of 
_backlight_update_status function in the following case:

- Setting brightness=0 when the backlight is not blank:
In the current case setting brightness=0 is disabling the backlight.
In the new case, setting brightness=0 will set the brightness to 0 and 
will do nothing to backlight disable.

I think that should not be a problem?

This extra check on bl->enabled flag is added to avoid 
enabling/disabling backlight again if it is already enabled/disabled.
Using this flag way can know the transition between backlight blank and 
un-blank, and decide when to enable/disable the backlight.

I haven't tested this myself, but I believe that it is needed. I don't
think the backlight update_status() function is like an enable/disable
function. I believe it can be called more than one time even while the
backlight is disabled. For instance, you can see that
backlight_update_status() just blindly calls through to update the
status. That function can be called for a number of reasons. Perhaps
Rajeev can put some printouts to confirm but I think that if the
backlight is "blanked" for whatever reason and you write to sysfs and
change the backlight level you'll still get called again even though
the backlight is still "disabled".

Yes, sysfs write will always try to update the backlight even though the 
backlight is "blanked".

The "bl->enabled" check is also required to prevent unnecessary calls to 
drm_edp_backlight_enable() during every backlight level change.

To confirm this, I have added few prints in 
dp_aux_backlight_update_status() function and collected the logs.
(Copying the code here to make the review easy)


static int dp_aux_backlight_update_status(struct backlight_device *bd)
{
         struct dp_aux_backlight *bl = bl_get_data(bd);
         u16 brightness = backlight_get_brightness(bd);
         int ret = 0;

+        pr_err("%s: brightness %d, _is_blank %d, bl->enabled %d\n", 
__func__,
+                brightness, backlight_is_blank(bd), bl->enabled);

         if (!backlight_is_blank(bd)) {
                 if (!bl->enabled) {
+                        pr_err("%s: enabling backlight\n", __func__);
                         drm_edp_backlight_enable(bl->aux, &bl->info, 
brightness);
                         bl->enabled = true;
                         return 0;
                 }
                 ret = drm_edp_backlight_set_level(bl->aux, &bl->info, 
brightness);
         } else {
                 if (bl->enabled) {
+                       pr_err("%s: disabling backlight\n", __func__);
                         drm_edp_backlight_disable(bl->aux, &bl->info);
                         bl->enabled = false;
                 }
         }

         return ret;
}
