( Original posting from [1] )

I have the backlight-type patchset for months in my patch-series (and
maintained them if necessary against daily linux-next).
Also the last series from 14-Jan-2011 (see 1-5 patch from [2] and the
following ones at dri-devel ML).

If you couldn't find the updated v2 radeon-backlight-type patch, here
the extract from my patch-series:
# Patch from <https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/491351/>
+ backlight-type/v2-drm-radeon-kms-Expose-backlight-class-device-for-legacy-LVDS-encoder.patch

I can only speak for the radeon(-KMS) part with
CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=y set and against linux-next: It worked,
it works.

I am a bit angry that someone of the "big 5" gets immediately an
answer where mine is ignored [3].
So dear Mr. AKPM, if you can standstill for a few moments to answer
only one of my questions, through which kernel-tree will this patchset
walk trough?
Thanks in advance.
