[PATCH v4 0/2][SRU][Bionic]Dell AIO UART backlight driver

AceLan Kao
BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1727235

[Impact]
New Dell AIO platforms requires a driver that can communicate with the
scalar IC FW through UART interface to get and set the brightness level.

[Test]
Verified on some new Dell AIO machines and confirmed it works.

[Fix]
Write a new driver to handle this task.

[Regression Potential]
Low, it's a new driver for new interface.

[Misc]
Upstream maintainer ask use to re-implement this driver by the new
interface, serdev, but serdev seems doesn't work with ACPI, so submit
this driver as Ubuntu sauce patch for now. I'll try re-write it when I'm
available.

[PATCH v4 1/2][SRU][Bionic]UBUNTU: SAUCE: platform/x86: dell-uart-backlight: new backlight driver for DELL AIO

AceLan Kao
BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1727235

The Dell AIO machines released after 2017 come with a UART interface
to communicate with the backlight scalar board. This driver creates
a standard backlight interface and talks to the scalar board through
UART.

In DSDT this uart port will be defined as
   Name (_HID, "DELL0501")
   Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0501")
The 8250 PNP driver will be loaded by default, and this driver uses
"DELL0501" to confirm the uart port is a backlight interface and
leverage the port created by 8250 PNP driver to communicate with
the scalar board.

v2:
   1. move struct uart_cmd to .c file
   2. make dell_uart_get_bl_power() inline
   3. add space to ternary operator "bl_cmd->cmd[2] = power ? 0 : 1;"
   4. check return value of kzalloc()
   5. add kzfree()
   6. check return value of backlight_device_register()
   7. check return value of filp_open() at init
v3:
   1. Fix compiling warning.
v4:
   1. make *tty and *ftty static
   2. bl_cmd->ret[0] will never be less than 0, fixed the if statement
   3. fix some line over 80 chars warnings.
