Hmm, it doesn't ack the writes to 0xA3, 0xA1 and 0xA2, which should
disable the PWM output and then disable the auto-off timer (according to
the vendor kernel).

And you said in your other mail that you can actually toggle the light
with writes to 0xA3, so I suspect a bug in the EC firmware here (which
may have gone unnoticed because the vendor kernel doesn't check if the
i2c transfers succeed). :/

IMHO we should get this driver merged first, and perhaps add a quirk to
deal with the missing ACKs later (unless a better solution is found).
