Backlight is only disabled in case no LVDS modes can be found. And in that
case, no LVDS connector gets added. Am I understanding you correctly if
"in theory" means LVDS can be hotplugged? In that case we have to call
psb_intel_lvds_init when hotplug occurs so the output gets added. If so, we
should put psb_backlight_init() there.

Please try the following patch on a system with LVDS hooked-up to something.
