More or less. It depends on the exact change. The change you proposed was only
for i915, and it's hard to push it that way. My change would be for all
backlight drivers, and will update the documentation about the interface, so
it's clear what we provide to user-space.
The developers are not certain that 0 being off is bad, but they seem to agree
that consistency is desirable (so if 0 is off, it should be off on all
drivers). However, they don't think it's possible to achieve this consistency,
but I think my patch can do that. We'll see.

All right, thanks. I'll add it to the list.
