I have applied it locally and tested on my MacBook 3,1 for several weeks
now. The intel X driver requires a small patch to use the mbp_backlight
class, but I'll let them know once this patch has been applied upstream.

There are several bugreports related to this issue at the ubuntu,
opensuse, and freedesktop bugzillas (see with links to the
other reports as well).
