lm3530_mode_set() has no local variable "pwm" and has no local variable
"brightness".

I see now that you prepared the patches against 3.2.4, which might
contribute to this problem, but I don't see how the patches could work
in 3.2 either. Perhaps 3.2.4 is significantly different from 3.2.

Anyway, I think I will drop all the patches again until we can get this
fully sorted out. Please don't prepare patches against ancient old
kernels like 3.2.4! They should be prepared and tested against the
latest Linus tree, from
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git. Or
against the latest linux-next from
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git
