CFA921 and backlight brightness control

Hi all,

Im having trouble controlling the backlight brightness properly.

The Linux kernel im using imx28-cfa10058.dts file has this entry. Can you please confirm this is correct?
Code:
    backlight {
        compatible = "pwm-backlight";
        pwms = <&pwm 4 5000000>;
        brightness-levels = <0 4 8 16 32 64 128 255>;
        default-brightness-level = <6>;
    };
Im adjusting brightness using: "echo VALUE > /sys/class/backlight/backlight/brightness"
VALUES of 0-5 all appear to be the same brightness, giving the brightest backlight.
VALUES of 6-7 reduce the backlight brightness by a small amount.

How do i fix this to get a wide range of adjustment?

Thanks in advance.
