(Subject changed to match the observed cause)

Figured out what the change was -- in 2.6.25.x, the brightness keys worked
without setting CONFIG_ACPI_VIDEO. However, in 2.6.26.x, the brightness keys
do not work on the console without that enabled.

If 2.6.25.x has that config option enabled, I still get the same blank screen
symptoms -- with the following in the X logs:

(II) PM Event received: Capability Changed

(WW) I810(0): Changing XVideo pipe (1 to 0).

Without CONFIG_ACPI_VIDEO, the above message don't appear. From this point,
any pointers on figuring out why the ACPI features makes the screen go blank?
