Oh you're using quoted-printable for patches.. Got it applied now,
and it still works. Below is also the related dts change that
I tested with.

Feel free to pick the dts change too, naturally that should
not be applied before the driver.

If you guys instead want me to pick these both into my fixes
branch, just let me know and I'll do the explaining why these
are needed as fixes. Basically we no longer have a way to enable
the LCD backlight for droid4 manually starting with v5.6-rc1
unlike earlier.
