Ok, after compiling it as a module and trying a few variations, it
seems that on my X41 Tablet only brightness_mode=2 works, that is
TPACPI_BRGHT_MODE_UCMS_STEP.

This is contrasted by thinkpad_acpi.c which states:
|if (acpi_evalf(ec_handle, NULL, "HBRV", "qd"))
| /* T40-T43, R50-R52, R50e, R51e, X31-X41 */
| brightness_mode = TPACPI_BRGHT_MODE_ECNVRAM;
|else
| /* all other IBM ThinkPads */
| brightness_mode = TPACPI_BRGHT_MODE_UCMS_STEP;

So TPACPI_BRGHT_MODE_ECNVRAM looks broken somehow?
I assume that the autodetection finds the HBRV acpi function and
selects the former, resulting in a not working backlight control.

FWIW here is the dmi info on my model:
