    Support 100 brightness levels and up to 21 ALS profiles · c749d9f7

    Previously mce used brightness levels 1-5, that corresponded to 20, 40,
    60, 80 or 100 percent brightness (manual mode) or selected one of the 5
    ALS profiles available (automatic mode).
    Now brightness level setting itself is percentage in manual mode and thus
    allows user to have more freedom to select suitable brightness.
    In automatic mode the percentage is mapped to one of the maximum of 21
    ALS profiles. The profiles follow the same logic as the previous five
    did, but having more of them allows user to select suitable compromise
    between how low the brightness is allowed to go vs. how fast it should go
    to the maximum brightness. There is also greater difference between the
    profiles in "office lightning" conditions, which hopefully makes it more
    apparent to users that the automatic mode is actually doing something.
    Existing brightness settings in the 1-5 range are migrated on during mce
    start up.
    Also the dimmed display brightness is now dynamic and is always less
    bright than the display on brightness.
