Hi,

Should we really fail here and cause -ENODEV to be returned? We could
simply try to go back to old fashion, i.e calculate pn using pn_min to 
pn_max algorithm as it is done currently, if lets say we couldn't read
it or pn was garbage.

If 25% of fxp is anyway an arbitrary value, can we just try to narrow
this [fxp_min, fxp_max] to [1 << pn_min, 255 << pn_max] if it happens
to be outside of the range? If fxp is within [1 << pn_min, 255 <<
pn_max] I guess we still can proceed.

Can we just fallback to old way here, instead of failure?
I see previsouly intel_dp_aux_set_pwm_freq was called only
if we had DP_EDP_BACKLIGHT_FREQ_AUX_SET_CAP set and it's 
failure didn't affect program flow that much. My concern is
that we have quite a lot of different hardware, so bailing
out that way could make our CI life a bit worse.

See intel_dp_aux_enable_backlight:

	if (intel_dp->edp_dpcd[2] & DP_EDP_BACKLIGHT_FREQ_AUX_SET_CAP)
		if (intel_dp_aux_set_pwm_freq(connector))
			new_dpcd_buf |= DP_EDP_BACKLIGHT_FREQ_AUX_SET_ENABLE;
