yes, i am use it only for reference

real brightness correspond values reported by 'brightness --read'
so sequential setbrightness with increasing values (1 - 255) - gives
expected thing - brightness changed from low to high.
If I do same thing with dev.acpi_snc.0.brightness - real brightness
jumps, see values in my previous post, "read" value for corresponds
physical screen brightness (in range 255 means 100%)
