Patch "28-fix-omnibook-brightness-levels.patch: Omnibooks have 11
brightness levels, not 8." broke my hal, see

It is not true that omnibook have 11 brightness level and not 8, it can
be both.

Omnibook module, if compiled with kernel >= 2.6.19 correctly creates

matteo at burnt:~$ ls /sys/class/backlight/omnibook/
actual_brightness  brightness  max_brightness  power  subsystem  uevent

this will be used by hal (I guess beyond version 0.5.9) to get
max_brightness of the device, the portion of code that the patch
modified will be dropped (see

In my opinion, you can skip that patch, thanks for all your work, I hope this helped.
