For basic sanity, could this please be a standard backlight driver
rather than sticking yet another backlight control under yet another
directory in /proc? It makes userspace much, much easier.
drivers/video/backlight/corgi_bl.c is an example, but also see my posts
to acpi-devel with patches that add it to existing acpi drivers.

What buttons does the hardware have? Would it make more sense for it to
be an input driver rather than (or as well as) just dropping stuff in
