This makes perfect sense. The problem with that commit is that the ACPI
handler part assumes the output with backlight is on pipe A, which may
not be the case. Particularly when booted in the dock.

I presume this can be "fixed" by disabling/enabling the outputs with
xrandr after undocking. Also, if you disable the ACPI video backlight
handling, userspace should use the native backlight interface
(intel_backlight) which is unaffected. Neither of these is the real fix,
of course.

This is the right fix, but obviously we didn't take your scenario into
account at the time (as the commit message still thinks this would only
affect baytrail).

Yup, see comments below. ;)

This is not correct because in v3.13 dev_priv->backlight is still driver
global, not per connector. This means that if you have at least one
connector with backlight control, the backlight is attempted to change
on all connectors. In your case, I'm not sure if it leads to anything
more than extra adjusting of the same backlight.

If you move the 'bool present' field to intel_connector or intel_panel,
I think this is all right.
