I was trying to figure out if there are any races / locking problems /
problems trying to tweak the backlight when the panel is off. I don't
_think_ there are. Specifically:

1. Before turning the panel off, drm_panel will call
backlight_disable(). That will set BL_CORE_FBBLANK which is not set by
any other calls. Then it will call your
dp_aux_backlight_update_status().

2. Once BL_CORE_FBBLANK is set then backlight_get_brightness() will
always return 0.

This means that a transition from 0 -> non-zero (and enable) will
always only happen when the panel is on, which is good. It also means
that we'll always transition to 0 (disable the backlight) when the
panel turns off.

In terms of other races, it looks like the AUX transfer code handles
grabbing a mutex around transfers so we should be safe there.

So I guess the above is just a long-winded way of saying that this
looks right to me. :-)

BTW: we should probably make sure that the full set of people
identified by `./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f
./drivers/video/backlight` are CCed on your series. I see Daniel
already and I've added the rest.

nit: move this part up above the memory allocation. There's no reason
to allocate memory for "bl" if the backlight isn't supported.

Slight nit that I would have wrapped the drm_panel_dp_aux_backlight()
to the next line just to avoid one really long line followed by a
short one.

Other than the two nits (ordering of memory allocation and word
wrapping in a comment), this looks good to me. Feel free to add my
Reviewed-by tag when you fix the nits.

NOTE: Even though I have commit access to drm-misc now, I wouldn't
feel comfortable merging this to drm-misc myself without review
feedback from someone more senior. Obviously we're still blocked on my
and Lyude's series landing first, but even assuming those just land
as-is we'll need some more adult supervision before this can land. ;-)
That being said, I personally think this looks pretty nice now.
