Subjectno backlight on radeon after recent kernel "upgrade"s
Dear Kernel Developers,

Since the most recent successful for me kernel 2.6.19-rc6-mm1, I've
tried few times to build more recent snapshots and now finally
2.6.20-mm2. In all those cases I have a sad outcome -- kernel boots but
at some point during boot (few moments after Penguin icon in the top left
corner appears), light turns off... I still can see something, especially
if I light a strong flashlight at a sharp angle.

I've enabled back-light support and lcd support for those unsuccessful
kernels (with all backlight support features disabled kernel boots
ok and backlight shines as bright as always)

All my changes of values for files under
had no impact on the screen. Also I had no files under /sys/class/lcd.

radeontool light off
caused complete turning off of LCD - I could not see
anything anymore.

sony's spictl -b had no effect as well.

Config can be found at
other details are available from

Could you please advise?
