Convert drivers/video/backlight/class to use dev_pm_ops for power

registers suspend/resume callbacks via class->pm (dev_pm_ops) instead of
Legacy class->suspend/resume. When __device_suspend() runs call-backs,
it will find class->pm ops for the backlight class.

Can you please resend the patches that nobody took with CCs to
linux-pm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx? If the original maintainers don't care, I'll be
able to pick those patches up then (if they look good).


Thanks. I have a few legacy pm patches that didn't get pulled into trees. I will rebase to the latest and resend.
