Subject[REGRESSION/PATCH] acpi: blacklist win8 OSI for ASUS Zenbok Prime UX31A
Date
Since v3.7 the acpi backlight driver doesn't work at all on this machine
because presumably the ACPI code contains stub code when Windows 8 OSI is
reported.

The commit ea45ea7 (in v3.11-rc2) tried to fix this problem by using the intel
backlight driver, however, on this machine it turns the backlight completely
off when it reaches level 0%, after which the user might have a lot trouble
trying to bring it back.

This patch fixes both regressions by blacklisting the win8 OSI, so we are back
to v3.6 behavior, and it should remain that way until the intel backlight
driver is fixed.

Since v3.7, users have been forced to fix the initial regression by modifying
the boot arguments [1].
