Subject: [PATCH] samsung-laptop: Set keyboard backlight initially

After boot, /sys/devices/platform/samsung/leds/samsung::kbd_backlight/brightness
shows the maximum value (8) by readout, but the led is off. I need to manually
set it to the respective value to have keyboard backlight.

Fixing via readout-write in samsung_leds_init().

Tested on Samsung NP900X3C.

I'm encountering a similar issue after suspend/resume (led is off). Still
wondering if and by which technique I should add a respective .resume() because
the driver currently doesn't have pm support and also doesn't register as a
driver. Any hint appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
