Right, but it affects the registration of the backlight and ACPI video
interface as well, so can affect backlight restore on resume. In my
case, without the above patch my backlight wouldn't be restored on
resume, so I'd have to manually echo a value
into /sys/class/backlight/<foo> to get my display back.
