dependent on the image. In brief the CABC does the histogram
analysis of the image and then controls the filter and backlight.
For example in CABC to display the dark image the backlight is dimmed
and then controlls the filter to allow more light, because of
which is power consuption will be reduced.
Below are the initial set of patches which supports the CABC.

when enabled indicates the CABC is supported. Depending on
this field the backlight control function pointer are

In case of dual link panels depending on the panel
the DCS commands have to be send to either PORT A,
PORT C or both PORT A and PORT C. Again a field is
added in the VBT to get this data from the version 197 onwards.
One of the below patches parses these fields from the
