Arbitrary backlight brightnesses get floored to the nearest 1/8

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xbacklight

Sometimes I'd like to set my backlight somewhere between the preset options I can get with Fn+F5 and Fn+F6. In the past, calling

]$ xbacklight -set n

where 0 <= n <= 100 would set the backlight to a value between 0 and 100.

Now n gets floored to the nearest 12.5 % , so n=24 gets transformed to 12.5%, n = 26 -> 25%, not 24% nor 26%.

this also means that if you call

]$ xbacklight -inc 5

for example, nothing happens.
