We've gotten a number of reports about backlight control not
working on panels which indicate that they use aux backlight
control.  A recent patch:

commit 2d73eabe2984a435737498ab39bb1500a9ffe9a9

    drm/amd/display: Only set default brightness for OLED

    [Why]
    We used to unconditionally set backlight path as AUX for panels capable
    of backlight adjustment via DPCD in set default brightness.

    [How]
    This should be limited to OLED panel only since we control backlight via
    PWM path for SDR mode in LCD HDR panel.

Changes some other code to only use aux for backlight control on
OLED panels.  The commit message seems to indicate that PWM should
be used for SDR mode on HDR panels.  Do something similar for
backlight control in general.  This may need to be revisited if and
when HDR started to get used.
