SubjectRe: 3.7.X vs 3.6.11 HP Folio 9470m brightness regression?
From
well, I tried to do that, bisecting between 3.6.10 and 3.7. I'm not
sure to have done that properly, as the result seems quite harmless,
however here it is:

d978348b300595b067b80980f6a78db09fcd584c is the first bad commit
commit d978348b300595b067b80980f6a78db09fcd584c
Author: Bob Moore <robert.moore@intel.com>

ACPICA: Split ACPICA initialization functions to new file, utxfinit.c

Split utxface.c to improve modularity and reduce file size.

Please let me know If I've done something wrong or if I can help in other ways.

Many thanks for the hint.
