[v3 0/2] drm: Add support for backlight control of eDP panel on ti-sn65dsi86 bridge

The backlight level of an eDP panel can be controlled through the AUX
channel using DPCD registers of the panel.

The capability for the Source device to adjust backlight characteristics
within the panel, using the Sink device DPCD registers is indicated by
register (DPCD Address 701h, bit0). In this configuration, the eDP TCON
receives the backlight level information from the host, through the AUX

Anderson's patch series [1] exposed the DDC bus from ti-sn65dsi86 bridge,
that gives an option to move the backlight control out of the bridge and
to create a separate backlight driver.

Changes in v2:
- Created a new DisplayPort aux backlight driver and moved the code from
drm_dp_aux_backlight.c (v1) to the new driver.
- Removed the changes done in ti-sn65dsi86 bridge. (Rob Herring)

Changes in v3:
- Add missing ';' to fix module compilation (kernel test bot)
