The casts come from the underlying need to limit the minumum and
maximum brightness within available bounds, plus difficulties doing
that when you are dealing with an enum data type.

kbd_led_set is a function pointer (from led_classdev.brightness_set)
which has this definition:

void (*brightness_set)(struct led_classdev *led_cdev, enum
led_brightness brightness);

It seems that the compiler has the choice of whether to use a signed
or unsigned type for enums. According to your tests, and a quick test
app below, it seems like gcc is using unsigned.

#include <stdio.h>
enum led_brightness { LED_OFF = 0 };
int main(void) {
enum led_brightness tmp = -1;
if (tmp < 0)
printf("less than zero\n");
else
printf("gt zero\n");
}

This test app prints "gt zero"

led-class.c:brightness_store() uses kstrtoul() so there is no chance
of passing a negative value through this codepath, as you suspected.
But we do need to do something with negative bounds for the code that
you are adding here.

I suggest doing it like this:

static void __kbd_led_set(struct led_classdev *led_cdev, int value)
{
struct asus_wmi *asus;

asus = container_of(led_cdev, struct asus_wmi, kbd_led);

if (value > asus->kbd_led.max_brightness)
value = asus->kbd_led.max_brightness;
else if (value < 0)
value = 0;

asus->kbd_led_wk = value;
queue_work(asus->led_workqueue, &asus->kbd_led_work);
}

static void kbd_led_set(struct led_classdev *led_cdev,
enum led_brightness value)
{
return __kbd_led_set(led_cdev, value);
}

Now kbd_led_set can continue being a correctly typed function pointer
for led_classdev.brightness_set. And from the code you are adding here
you can call __kbd_led_set directly with signed integer values, and
rely on correct bounds correction without ugly casts.

Andy, what do you think?

Thanks
Daniel
