    I've done some basic testing on my MBP 5,3 (just setting a few
    brightness levels, nothing fancy), and it all works, so feel free to add
    my basic

    if you wish. Please let me know if you need testing for future gmux

    A few questions:
    * I'm using nouveau, and with the gmux I have both gmux_backlight
    and nv_backlight (which never worked) in /sys/class/backlight, is this
    * Is there anything I can do to test the sysfs backlight interface
    besides setting the levels?
    * Besides the sysfs backlight interface, are there any other
    userspace-visible changes your driver makes that I should test?
