Looks like you now have some positive feedback. :) Could you please collect all of your received Acks and re-post this set as a [RESEND] please? > Best regards, > > Enric Balletbo i Serra (4): > backlight: pwm_bl: linear interpolation between brightness-levels > dt-bindings: pwm-backlight: add a num-interpolation-steps property. > backlight: pwm_bl: compute brightness of LED linearly to human eye. > dt-bindings: pwm-backlight: move brightness-levels to optional. > > .../bindings/leds/backlight/pwm-backlight.txt | 34 ++- > drivers/video/backlight/pwm_bl.c | 232 > +++++++++++++++++++-- > 2 files changed, 246 insertions(+), 20 deletions(-) -- Lee Jones [李琼斯] Linaro Services Technical Lead Linaro.org │ Open source software for ARM SoCs Follow Linaro: Facebook | Twitter | Blog
