Bug#681743: i915: display backlight brightness initially set to zero on boot
Tested 3.5.0-rc7+, boots up the same way, with the backlight off. Adding
i915.invert_brightness=1 makes it turn the brightness up to the maximum
as expected, however this is pretty ugly. Without this parameter, I can
just turn the brightness up with the fn keys and I get the nice
on-screen indicator from GNOME. However with invert_brightness I need to
turn it _up_, with the indicator showing it going up, in order to get it
down, and vice versa.
Anyway, I guess the desired result is that it should "just work" without
having to do special workarounds.
