Subject[PATCH] i915: Fix bug where screen brightness is not restored
From: Alex Davis<alex14641@yahoo.com>

This patch fixes an issue where the screen would remain dark when

a key was pressed when the laptop lid was reopened or after the
laptop had gone into power-save mode.

It seems that there are a number of people with different machines
that have this problem:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/872652
https://launchpad.net/~kamalmostafa/+archive/stuck-backlight
and https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41926

This patch is against Linux 3.1

Putting printk's in ./drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_panel.c showed that
intel_get_brightness was being called after the panel was disabled,
which caused a 0 to be saved as the value to restore the brightness.
intel_panel_disable_backlight merely sets the brightness to 0. Commenting
out this call allows the correct brightness value to be saved.
