This is actually a regression on Samsung notebooks as the backlight is
no longer working with linux-3.2. It would be really nice to see this
in the stable branch or at least in linux-3.3.

The samsung driver disables its own backlight driver if ACPI core
handles the backlight since linux-3.2. If you don't want to pickup
this patch it would be nice to see the samsung driver fixing this
issue.

David
