* [PATCH] drm/amd/display: use correct scale for actual_brightness

Documentation for sysfs backlight level interface requires that
values in both 'brightness' and 'actual_brightness' files are
interpreted to be in range from 0 to the value given in the
'max_brightness' file.

With amdgpu, max_brightness gives 255, and values written by the user
into 'brightness' are internally rescaled to a wider range. However,
reading from 'actual_brightness' gives the raw register value without
inverse rescaling. This causes issues for various userspace tools such
as PowerTop and systemd that expect the value to be in the correct
range.

Introduce a helper to retrieve internal backlight range. Extend the
existing 'convert_brightness' function to handle conversion in both
directions.

This is a cleaner change the other proposed patch since it doesn't need 
to modify the exist conversion functions but I'd be worried about broken 
userspace relying on 0-255 as the only acceptable range.

Not an expert on existing implementations to point out a specific one 
though.

Overall approach seems reasonable, nice catch.

I suggest to add convert_to_user_brightness() instead of making 
from_user a flag and extending the current functionality though. It 
makes it more clear from the call site what's happening.

Not sure what you mean by this. Userspace simply reads the maximum value from
max_brightness sysfs file. On other gpu/firmware combinations it can be 7 or 9
for example, it just happens to be 255 with modern amdgpu. Minimum value is
always zero.

Value seen in max_brightness remains 255 with this patch, so as far as userspace
is concerned nothing is changed apart from value given by actual_brightness file.
