Subject[PATCH 01/14] ACPI / Video: blacklist some samsung laptops
Date
From: Corentin Chary <corentincj@iksaif.net>

On these laptops, the ACPI video is not functional, and very unlikely
to be fixed by the vendor. Note that intel_backlight works for some
of these laptops, and the backlight from samsung-laptop always work.

The good news is that newer laptops have functional ACPI video device
and won't end up growing this list.
