Can you give a URL to the other patch please?

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.
