Subject[PATCH] Add backlight driver for Nvidia-based Apple Macbook Pros
Nvidia-based Apple Macbook Pros don't appear to handle backlight control 
through the graphics card registers or ACPI, but instead trigger changes
via SMI calls. This driver registers a generic backlight device that
lets existing userspace deal with it. Code derived from Julien Blache's
Pommed application.

Lennart - as far as I could tell from your description, the DMI
autoloading code for this should be correct. However, it's not working
for me on F9. Have I missed something, or does it just not work there?
