Subject: [PATCH v2] drm/amd/display: use correct scale for actual_brightness
Date: Tue,  4 Aug 2020 23:13:13 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200804201313.6464-1-amonakov@ispras.ru> (raw)

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. Use it to
reimplement 'convert_brightness' as 'convert_brightness_from_user' and
introduce 'convert_brightness_to_user'.
