I wrote a patch to provide the functionality. Here you go:

It'd be great if this could be included. Better yet would be
to allow specifying the raw register value, of course with
an -EINVAL if bits unrelated to swizzle and backlight are set.

In another email you mentioned using test images. I made one
that seems to do a nice job. Note that you mustn't view a
scaled version, as that messes up the measurement. The web
browser scales images by default now, so don't use that.
The "xli" program works OK.
