Dear all, This series is a third patchset (resend )integrating the requested changes.
The first and second patch what tries to solve is the problem of granularity for high resolution PWMs. The idea is simple interpolate between 2 brightness values so we can have a high PWM duty cycle (a 16 bits PWM is up to 65535 possible steps) without having to list out every possible value in the dts. I think that this patch is required to not break backward compatibility, to be more flexible and also extend the functionality to be able to use high resolution PWM with enough steps to have a good UI experience in userspace. The thirth and fourth patch is a bit more ambicious, the idea is let decide the driver the brightness-levels required in function of the PWM resolution. To do this create a brightness-levels table filled with the CIE 1931 algorithm values to convert brightness to PWM duty cycle. More detailed info is available in the commit message of every patch. Both functionalities were tested on a Samsung Chromebook Plus (that has a 16 bits PWM) and a SL50 device (with a 8 bits PWM) Waiting for your feedback.
