A true mainline Linux Kernel for the Pinebook Pro

I've built a kernel from a March 6 28ceb942df48e14ee1c2006 git commit, and booting it to no-X login.  Initially, and for around 3/4 of a second, the screen is at normal brightness, but at some point in the boot-up, the screen(/backlight?) gets very dim, and stays that way until I reboot.

that is kind of expected for old installs. Due to the device tree change the scale of the brightness has changed. Unfortunately most(all?) systems for restoring the old brightness value do not take into account the max_brightness value. Thus the brightness is wrong when booted with the new device tree, sorry.
