Well, that at least confirms that thinkpad-acpi doesn't have anything to
do with your troubles, you were using acpi video.

While the problem isn't fixed, you can try forcing thinkpad-acpi to
provide a backlight interface and use that (docs in
Documentation/laptops/thinkpad-acpi.txt). But you get to keep both pieces
if that causes the kernel or X.org's GPU drivers to blow up in pieces when
the SMBIOS messes with the GPU behind their backs.
