Hi Len,

Sorry for that but this patch was re-sent recently, and Matthew told
me to do that this should be done in samsung-laptop.c instead.

The resulting patch has been merged in Matthew's tree:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git;a=blobdiff;f=drivers/platform/x86/samsung-laptop.c;h=e2a34b42ddc1d584b5333fe9921d0d2c2b12dda4;hp=4787afdf11dc20e69af8fe5324366d4bd65aeb98;hb=a979e2e2af7d5b4bb3b20f6a716c627bb23a6753;hpb=5719b81988f3c24ff694dc3a37e35b35630a3966

One of these patches should be reverted, but which one ?
Note that apple-gmux and acer-wmi are also using the
acpi_video_unregister() trick in linux-next.

Thanks,
