SubjectBacklight and LCD module patches [1]
Hello!

I've tried to fulfill all the requirements that various people presented to
the previous version of this patch; this and the following letter contains
the fixed version of the patch that is proposed to be included into the
mainstream kernel.

--
Greetings,
Andrew

This patch adds the class_device_find() function, which can be used
to find a class_device by its name. The function was originally
written by Greg Kroah-Hartman.

Also it fixes the class_rename() function to accept 'const char *'
argument as the new class device name.
