Well,
for me ACPI_VIDEO newer worked alright and caused hardware backlight control not to work properly. However, I was happy with DRM_I915, ACPI enabled and ACPI_VIDEO disabled in .30-rc7 (no build problems here(?)). So commit 31db5645bda24682dadbc97d5e8a7918ade2a298 broke my setup. I wonder whether ACPI_VIDEO is really needed by DRM_I915. Could it be made optional?

The proper solution to this may be fixing acpi-video to work here (Fujitsu-Siemens M9400 laptop with Intel GM965 gpu), but I've never had a use for it, so it's not relevant for me.
