That would be my guess based on the (admitted not to be very deep reading across
some of your and Rui's comments. He probably has a better Idea on that. But what
the patch in question does is to allow video devices that have not all the
methods defined (before _DOD *and* _DOS, after _DOD *or* _DOS) to be handled by
the generic acpi video driver. And this gets you backlight control (by some
additional methods). But now, as the driver is in use, it is in the
suspend/resume path and this causes problems.
From cross reading bugmail I had the feeling Rui was on a track while I did not
follow close enough to take in any details.
I would suspect that code assumes details from those two (_DOD and _DOS which is
not there if the BIOS provides them both and is not handled as the driver used
to be only used in that case). I probably should get back and read the bug
report with all the info in detail somewhen tomorrow.
