Subject: [PATCH v2] backlight: pwm_bl: Fix GPIO out for unimplemented .get_direction()

Commit 7613c922315e308a ("backlight: pwm_bl: Move the checks for initial
power state to a separate function") not just moved some code, but made
slight changes in semantics.

If a gpiochip doesn't implement the optional .get_direction() callback,
gpiod_get_direction always returns -EINVAL, which is never equal to
GPIOF_DIR_IN, leading to the GPIO not being configured for output.

To avoid this, invert the test and check for not GPIOF_DIR_OUT instead,
like the original code did.

This restores the display on r8a7740/armadillo.

Fixes: 7613c922315e308a ("backlight: pwm_bl: Move the checks for initial power state to a separate function")
