gpiod_get_value() gives out a warning if access to the underlying gpiochip
requires sleeping, which is common for I2C based chips:

This was missed in commit 0c9501f823a4 ("backlight: pwm_bl: Handle gpio
that can sleep"). The code was then moved to a separate function in
commit 7613c922315e ("backlight: pwm_bl: Move the checks for initial power
state to a separate function").

The only usage of gpiod_get_value() is during the probe stage, which is
safe to sleep in. Switch to gpiod_get_value_cansleep().
