There have been some concerns regarding the precision of readouts from the
Ambient Light Sensor. To decrease the entropy, we are rounding off the
illuminance value to the nearest 50 Lux to mitigate the known attack
vectors as summarized in [1].

Blink-specific sensor tests now use a ring buffer for readings needed for
sensor/ambient-light-sensor.html
