    I have applied it locally and tested on my MacBook 3,1 for several weeks
    now. The intel X driver requires a small patch to use the mbp_backlight
    class, but I'll let them know once this patch has been applied upstream.

    There are several bugreports related to this issue at the ubuntu,
    opensuse, and freedesktop bugzillas (see
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581474 with links to the
    other reports as well).

    Thanks
