I've already checked this.

There is another driver which has a similar construction. I believe that it
would be good to add an acpi_video_handles_key_presses() helper to the
acpi-video code which can be used for this instead of abusing
acpi_video_get_backlight_type() for this. I've put this on my todo list
to do as a further cleanup once the initial series is merged.
