[PATCH 0/1][Saucy] Workaround for backlight issues on some Lenovos

This is a workaround we had in raring for Lenovos which use a broken
ACPI backlight implementation whenever the OS claims Windows 8
compatibility. It was dropped in saucy, but there's still no generic
solution upstream, so we should go ahead and carry it for another cycle.
Hopefully we can drop it for good after that.
