Well, so it lasted a little bit longer then 'the next days' but I finally
made it ;-)
New patch attached which does the following:
Patch adding support for the /sys/class/backlight interface. If available,
a device /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer_backlight is created. The
patch adds a class device and adjusts the scripts for the methods
GetBrightness and SetBrightness on the interface
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.LaptopPanel. As soon as all kernel drivers are
converted to the new interface, we can drop the vendor specific code in
acpi.c. In case a driver supports both, the old /proc interface and the
new /sysfs one, the code in acpi.c immediately returns so that the /sysfs
interface is preferred.
Comments? Commit approvals? ;-)
