ACPI / video: ignore BIOS initial backlight value for HP Pavilion g6
Ash Willis [Wed, 29 May 2013 01:27:59 +0000 (01:27 +0000)]
This patch addresses kernel bug 56661. BIOS reports an incorrect
backlight value, causing the driver to switch off the backlight
completely during startup. This patch ignores the incorrect value from
BIOS.
