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.
