[Bug 415023] Re: brightness is broken on MSI WIND U100

In comment 80, two bugs were isolated. The "workaround" for the second part was nomodeset.
If you use it, the workaround for the 1st part is xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native
and you get back the 8 levels of backlight control.
It may help for the second part too except that, because of bug 428054 (it is a duplicate but I am not sure that the main bug looks for the same problem), you cannot set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL on LVDS1 to native (in fact disable software BACKLIGHT_CONTROL if I understand).
If it is so, it may help to raise 397617 bug status from low to at least medium.
