It's ages sony_laptop doesn't change, it may be some other change in the
acpi layer that causes this.

How about the input layer? /proc/acpi/event is deprecated and you should
not rely on that.
But anyway, it's a Fn key issue, not backlight control itself, right?
Can you change brightness echoing to the sysfs files directly?

can you attach dmesg output after loading sony_laptop with debug=1 and
pressing the brightness keys?
