3.8.13.3 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Alex Hung <alex.hung@canonical.com>

commit fedbe9bc6fd3e14b1ffbb3dac407777ac4a3650c upstream.

On HP m4 lapops, BIOS reports minimum backlight on boot and
causes backlight to dim completely. This ignores the initial backlight
values and set to max brightness.
