Rafal, try use omnibook driver.
Get it with subversion:
$ svn co
https://omnibook.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/omnibook/omnibook/trunk

Use "make install" and "make load".

After this, maybe is possible change brightness writing in
/proc/omnibook/lcd (0 is minimun and 7 is max brightness)

Best regards,
Renato S. Yamane
