Hi all.

Follow-up on v4 - with only a few changes listed below and
in the individual patches.
Thanks for all the reviews and the feedback on the patches!

I am planning a follow-up on this patchset to update the
backlight drivers all over to use backlight_get_brightness()
and backlight_is_blank() as appropriate.

v5:
  - Added r-b's
  - Updated cr_bllcd to use gpio-backlight semantics
  - Various editorial updates to changelogs
  - Rebased on top of Lee's backlight tree
  - Dropped "make of_find_backlight_by_node() static"
    The change depends on drm-misc-next.
    Will be re-send when the changes hits the backlight tree
    (We could have done this in other ways, but it is easier to just wait)

v4:
  - Introduced backlight_get_brightness based on feedback from Emil.
  - Properly described the rationale behind more restrictive locking use
    I checked that locking was not used outside backlight core
    by renaming the lock fields.
    As it is not used seems OK to restrict use to the core.
  - Introducing backlight_get_brightness invalidated
    some patches and I did a bit finer split to ease review.
  - Added acks
  - A few small adjustments documented in the individual patches

v3:
  - Dropped video patch that was reviewd and thus applied
  - Updated kernel-doc so all fields now have a short intro
  - Improved readability in a lot of places, thanks to review
    feedback from Daniel - thanks!
  - Added better intro to backlight
  - Added acks

    Several other smaller changes documented in the
    patches.
    I left out patches to make functions static as
    there are dependencies to drm-misc-next for these.

v2:
  - Dropped drm patches that was reviewed and thus applied (Thanks Tomi)
  - Updated backligth_is_blank() based on Daniel's feedback
  - Dropped EXPORT_SYMBOL that was no longer relevant
  - Reordered patches, so patches with no external
    dependencies comes first
  - Updated the description that follows.

The following series touches a lot of backlight things.

Starts with a small refactoring in backligth.c to remove some indents.
This increases the readability and no functional changes.

Then two new helpers backlight_is_blank(), backlight_get_brightness()
are added. These helpers simplifies the implementation of update_status()
in the backlight drivers where they are used.

Then while surfing the code I missed some documentation.
So I got a bit carried away and updated the documentation
for the backlight core and added it to kernel-doc.
The documentation express my current understanding.
Everything from spelling errors to outright wrong content
shall be anticipated - so please review!
We are all best helped if the documentation is correct
and up-to-date and it is readable.

In this process I identified that the backlight_bl driver
was no longer in use - so drop it.

Everything builds, but so far no run-time testing.

The backlight support has three properties that express the state:
- power
- state
- fb_blank

It is un-documented and easy to get wrong.
Add backlight_is_blank() helper to make it simpler
for drivers to get the check of the state correct.

A lot of drivers also includes checks for fb_blank.
This check is redundant when the state is checked
and thus not needed in this helper function.
But added anyway to avoid introducing subtle bugs
due to the creative use of fb_blank in some drivers.
Introducing this helper will for some drivers results in
added support for fb_blank. This will be a change in
functionality, which will improve the backlight driver.

Rolling out this helper to all relevant backlight drivers
will eliminate almost all accesses to fb_blank.

v5:
  - Improved changelog, added fb_blank to properties
    that express state (Daniel)

v4:
  - struct backlight_device * is now const

v3:
  - Clarified that the fb_blank support in
    backlight_is_blank() may result in functionality
    changes for the users (Emil)

v2:
  - Added fb_blank condition (Daniel)

Improve the documentation for backlight_device and
adapt it to kernel-doc style.

The updated documentation is more strict on how locking is used.
With the update neither update_lock nor ops_lock may be used
outside the backlight core.
This restriction was introduced to keep the locking simple
by keeping it in the core.
It was verified that this documents the current state by renaming
update_lock => bl_update_lock and ops_lock => bl_ops_lock.
The rename did not reveal any uses outside the backlight core.
The rename is NOT part of this patch.

v3:
  - Update changelog to explain locking details (Daniel)

v2:
  - Add short intro to all fields (Daniel)
  - Updated description of update_lock (Daniel)

The backlight_bl driver required initialization using
struct generic_bl_info. As there are no more references
to this struct there is no users left.
So it is safe to delete the driver.

No need to put "extern" in front of prototypes.
While touching the prototypes adjust indent to follow
the kernel style.

Add overview chapter to backlight.c.
Update existing kernel-doc to follow a more consistent
style and drop kernel-doc for deprecated functions.

v4:
  - Include updated devm_of_find_backlight doc
    (was accidently included in a later patch)

v3:
  - Updated a few editorial details (Daniel)

v2:
  - Sevaral editorial corrections that makes reading
    much easier (Daniel)
  - Spelling fixes (Daniel)
  - updated intro chapter with a little more info

+/**
+ * DOC: overview
+ *
+ * The backlight core supports implementing backlight drivers.
+ *
+ * A backlight driver registers a driver using
+ * devm_backlight_device_register(). The properties of the backlight
+ * driver such as type and max_brightness must be specified.
+ * When the core detect changes in for example brightness or power state
+ * the update_status() operation is called. The backlight driver shall
+ * implement this operation and use it to adjust backlight.
+ *
+ * Several sysfs attributes are provided by the backlight core::
+ *
+ * - brightness         R/W, set the requested brightness level
+ * - actual_brighness   RO, the brightness level used by the HW
+ * - max_brightness     RO, the maximum  brightness level supported
+ *
+ * See Documentation/ABI/stable/sysfs-class-backlight for the full list.
+ *
+ * The backlight can be adjusted using the sysfs interface, and
+ * the backlight driver may also support adjusting backlight using
+ * a hot-key or some other platfrom or firmware specific way.
+ *
+ * The driver must implement the get_brightness() operation if
+ * the HW do not support all the levels that can be specified in
+ * brightness, thus providing user-space access to the actual level
+ * via the actual_brightness attribute.
+ *
+ * When the backlight changes this is reported to user-space using
+ * an uevent connected to the actual_brightness attribute.
+ * When brightness is set by platform specific means, for example
+ * a hot-key to adjust backlight, the driver must notify the backlight
+ * core that brightness has changed using backlight_force_update().
+ *
+ * The backlight driver core receives notifications from fbdev and
+ * if the event is FB_EVENT_BLANK and if the value of blank, from the
+ * FBIOBLANK ioclt, results in a change in the backlight state the
+ * update_status() operation is called.

Based on an idea from Emil Velikov <emil.l.velikov@gmail.com>
add a helper that checks backlight_is_blank() and return 0 as brightness
if display is blank or the property value if not.

This allows us to simplify the update_status() implementation
in most of the backlight drivers.

Replaces the open-coded checks of the state, with the
backlight_get_brightness() helper. This increases readability
of the code and align the functionality across the drivers.

Futhermore drop the debug prints in update_status().
If we need debug printing then we can add it to the backlight core.

v2:
  - Use backlight_get_brightness()

cr_bllcd can turn backlight ON or OFF.
Fix semantitics so they equals what we know from gpio-backlight.
brightness == 0   => backlight off
brightness == 1   => backlight on

Use the backlight_get_brightness() helper to simplify the code.

v2:
  - reworked to introduce gpio-backlight semantics (Daniel)

Introduce the use of backlight_get_brightness() to simplify
the update_status() operation.
With the simpler implementation drop the gpio_backlight_get_next_brightness()
helper as it was now a one-liner.

Use the backlight_is_blank() helper to simplify the code a bit.

The jornada720_bl driver distingush between backlight off
and brightness set to 0.

Thus this driver turn off backlight only when backlight_is_blank()
returns true.

v2:

Introduce the backlight_get_brightness() helper in all
video/backlight/* drivers.
This simplifies the code and align the implementation of the
update_status() operation across the different backlight drivers.

Some of the drivers gains a little extra functionality by the change
as they now respect the fb_blank() ioctl.

v2:
  - Fix spelling in subject (Uwe)

There are no external users of backlight_put().
Drop it and open code the two users in backlight.c.

There are no external users of of_find_backlight,
as they have all changed to use the managed version.
Make of_find_backlight static to prevent new external users.

v3:
  - Move doc for devm_of_find_backlight out of this patch

v2:
  - Editorial corrections (Daniel)
  - Returns => RETURNS (Daniel)

Wasn't this added for v5? However, I spotted this change amoung the
other patches so no worries...

I do not increment version for individual patches unless there are
changes. So this is the second version of this patch, but included in the
v5 submission.
But I can see how this can confuse the receiver.
I will consider to adapt to the practice to indicate version of submission
and not the individual patches.

All applied, but to be honest, that was quite painful.

A few notes for subsequent patches.

 - Enable spell-checkers in your editors
   - I fixed the issues up for you here - there were quite a few!
 - Run ./checkpatch.pl before submitting - here's what I find useful
   * .git/hooks/post-commit: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/WpPFd6M2rB/
 - Please keep the in-patch changelog below the '---' line, so that it
   does not end up in the final commit log
 - Cc: lines *above* the *-bys please
 - Cc: lines dropped for any *-bys provided
 - Lines wrapped ~72 chars (not 50)
 - One whole empty line spacing between paragraphs
 - Ensure you use the formatting expected of the subsystem - in the
   case of Backlight it's:

     <subsystem>: <file>: Subject beginning with an upper-case char

   A `git log --oneline -- subsystem` would give you a good idea of
   what's expected.
