DDCUtil: Improved DDCUtil support for brightness control over DDC/CI channel for supported monitors
Reworked & simplified based on feedback from DDCUtil author in D5381.
Fixed CMakeList to add definitions for use in the code.
Updated the code to use the the ddcutil 0.9.5 C API
- multiple DDC-capable monitors connected will be used, however only one slider is showed. All monitors will be affected with the same brightness value.
- ddcutil has to be setup so that it can be used as user (1. load i2c-dev on boot, 2. udev rule to affect /dev/i2c-* nodes to the i2c user group, 3. add your user to the i2c group.)
Tested on X session seems stable
the capabilities enumeration seems a bit inconsistent. Fixed by using "the old capability testing method": test each parameter by trying to read its current value.
Tested with dell 2212HM alone, and also with Magedok t116 as second display on AMD gpu using Mesa.
Using OpenSuse Krypton.
