Doesn't work on my notebook with i915/KMS. But then again, neither did
2.6.38 or any of its stable releases. The last working version was
2.6.38-rc8. The problem has been reported, but the bug got closed
in the wrong assumption that the bug is fixed. I reported that, too.
No reactions to that.
The bug was introduced with commit ba3820ade317ee36e496b9b40d2ec3987dd4aef0
by Takashi Iwai. The result is that when using KMS my notebook's screen
remains dark, because the backlight isn't turned on.
Reverting commit ba3820ade317ee36e496b9b40d2ec3987dd4aef0 makes my
notebook work correctly again as it used to in 2.6.38-rc8 and before.
