ACPI / video: Only default only_lcd to true on Win8-ready _desktops_
Commit 5928c281524f (ACPI / video: Default lcd_only to true on Win8-ready and newer machines) made only_lcd default to true on all machines where acpi_osi_is_win8() returns true, including laptops. The purpose of this is to avoid the bogus / non-working acpi backlight interface which many newer BIOS-es define on desktop machines. But this is causing a regression on some laptops, specifically on the Dell XPS 13 2013 model, which does not have the LCD flag set for its fully functional ACPI backlight interface. Rather then DMI quirking our way out of this, this commits changes the logic for setting only_lcd to true, to only do this on machines with a desktop (or server) dmi chassis-type. Note that we cannot simply only check the chassis-type and not register the backlight interface based on that as there are some laptops and tablets which have their chassis-type set to "3" aka desktop. Hopefully the combination of checking the LCD flag, but only on devices with a desktop(ish) chassis-type will avoid the needs for DMI quirks for this, or at least limit the amount of DMI quirks which we need to a minimum.
