This series updates the apple-gmux driver we're carrying in precise
with changes requested during upstream review. These changes cause the
apple_bl and acpi_video backlights to be disabled whenever a gmux device
is found. This requires adding a prerequisite patch to add the
interfaces for disabling apple_bl. This will bring us in sync with the
patches that will be merged upstream for 3.4.

These patches replace "UBUNTU: SAUCE: (drop after 3.3) platform/x86: Add
driver for Apple gmux device" in precise (currently f1c2892 on
