OH! Nice catch, I wonder if this explains some of the weirdness with samus-
fi-bdw…

Anyway-unfortunately I don't know the precise answer to if we're supposed to
be inverting the panel backlight level or not, so I'd say we should probably
just go with whatever the Intel HDR AUX interface is currently doing - which
is inverting the panel PWM level when needed. Will fix this in a respin
shortly
