Hi Keith,

I had a chance to test your patches this weekend:

  drm: record monitor status in output_poll_execute
  drm: Set connector DPMS status to ON in drm_crtc_helper_set_config

cherry picked from ickle's repo on top of Linus' git 0f639a3c5ca6
("Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound-2.6").

Unfortunately, they do not correct my laptop backlight issue (fdo
bugzilla #31803): the panel still dims whenever the lid is opened.
