Mon Apr 8 09:49:31 UTC 2013 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lekensteyn <lekensteyn at gmail.com>

commit d627b62ff8d4d36761adbcd90ff143d79c94ab22 upstream.

This is rather a hack to fix brightness hotkeys on a Clevo laptop. CADL is not
used anywhere in the driver code at the moment, but it could be used in BIOS as
is the case with the Clevo laptop.

The Clevo B7130 requires the CADL field to contain at least the ID of
the LCD device. If this field is empty, the ACPI methods that are called
on pressing brightness / display switching hotkeys will not trigger a
notification. As a result, it appears as no hotkey has been pressed.
