This small i915 backlight initialization fix (cherry-picked from the
drm-intel-nightly tree) enables working brightness controls on Dell XPS 13 and
other Sandybridge-Mobile GPU machines.

This patch is low-risk for Raring: the fix restores part of the backlight init
sequence to the way it had worked before a recent change in August broke it.
The pending commit in drm-intel-nightly is marked cc: stable, but it may not
land in mainline before 3.9.
