thinkpad-acpi: untangle ACPI/vendor backlight selection
acpi_video_backlight_support() already tells us if ACPI is handling backlight control through the generic ACPI handle. It is better to just trust it. While at it, adjust down a printk priority, and test earlier for brightness_enable=0. Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> Signed-off-by: Matthew Garrett <mjg@redhat.com>

backlight brightness control interface if it detects that the standard
ACPI interface is available in the ThinkPad.
+If you want to use the thinkpad-acpi backlight brightness control
+instead of the generic ACPI video backlight brightness control for some
+reason, you should use the acpi_backlight=vendor kernel parameter.
+
The brightness_enable module parameter can be used to control whether
the LCD brightness control feature will be enabled when available.
brightness_enable=0 forces it to be disabled. brightness_enable=1
