If too high a brightness value has been saved (e.g. due to kernel
mechanism changing from one kernel version to another, or booting the
userspace on another system), the brightness update fails and the
process exits.

Clamp saved brightness between the policy minimum introduced in

    backlight: Avoid restoring brightness to an unreadably dim level

and the absolute maximum.
