backlight: add backlight type
Matthew Garrett [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:30:21 +0000 (16:30 -0700)]
There may be multiple ways of controlling the backlight on a given
machine.  Allow drivers to expose the type of interface they are
providing, making it possible for userspace to make appropriate policy
decisions.

+               "platform": The driver uses a platform-specific interface
+               "raw": The driver controls hardware registers directly
+
+               In the general case, when multiple backlight
+               interfaces are available for a single device, firmware
+               control should be preferred to platform control should
+               be preferred to raw control. Using a firmware
+               interface reduces the probability of confusion with
+               the hardware and the OS independently updating the
+               backlight state. Platform interfaces are mostly a
+               holdover from pre-standardisation of firmware
+               interfaces.
