It doesn't seem to be the best way to solve this problem to me, as the
platform driver doesn't need to be dependent on ACPI video driver and
ACPI video driver shouldn't handle things like these.

The current backlight model has limitations to solve problems like this,
also bear in mind we have some thinkpad models that have similar
problems. I sent the email hoping we can have a discussion on this
topic a while ago:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-acpi&m=136507538826872&w=2
Unfortunately nobody seems interested.

I'm thinking how we can deal with such problems altogether, introducing
something like backlight manager seems to be a necessary thing to do now.

Thanks,
Aaron
