Still, as Alex mentioned, there may be some dependency between the panel
and the backlight, so we may need to have some kind of connection. I
haven't had much time to look at the panel subsystem, but perhaps it
should provide for this.

I obviously don't know every panel and backlight combination out there,
but isn't the dependency more of a usability nature. What I mean is that
the panel will work even if you switch the backlight on immediately,
just that the panel might take some time to properly display data and
therefore the backlight should remain powered off so the user doesn't
see garbage. Or are there really any functional dependencies?
