Both of these are probably controlled by the gmux device on your
machine. I've submitted a driver that gets the backlight working [1]. I
haven't worked on the GPU muxing yet though, because the machine I'm
working with (MacBook Pro 8,2) has graphics issues under EFI boot that I
haven't had time to sort out.
