... then handling of the minimum brightness looks weird in this driver.

The range of the backlight is 0..max_brightness. Sadly the drivers
are inconsistant regarding whether zero means off or just minimum,
however three certainly isn't supposed to mean off! In other words the
offsetting should be handled by driver rather than hoping userspace has
some magic LM3630A mode.
