[Bug 44962] Re: Laptop dims on startup even on AC

Patch "28-fix-omnibook-brightness-levels.patch: Omnibooks have 11
brightness levels, not 8." broke my hal, see
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392022.

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
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/hal/2006-October/006317.html)

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