Verbose boot dmesg.

I'm aware that to control backlight you have to use graphics/intel-backlight (is there any chance to see this exposed to sysctl in the future without needing this kludge?) -- and it works if I bind it to some window manager keys.

However, I can not use the brightness keys via window manager nor devd, because they generate no events at all. I have tried loading different acpi_* kernel modules, and none of them work.

This has always been the case, since version 9, and I have not used any earlier version.

ACPI errors

These errors show up at random, are they relevant?

I forgot to add: brightness works up until the kernel is loader. And the brightness set by intel-backlight does not survive suspend restore -- it is reset to the pre-kernel setting.
