Public bug reported:

The fdi policy in HAL is wrong fo Macbook Core 2 Duo - which is
MacBook2,1. The fdi only matches against Macbook1,1

the line taken from /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-macbook-

  <match key="smbios.system.product" string="MacBook1,1">

for Core2Duo it should be
  <match key="smbios.system.product" string="MacBook2,1">.

I don't really have an understanding of XML, but the match key should
include both models. Anyways, changing this bit enables backlight
control for me (A Core2Duo Macbook).
