Well, backlight support is in rivafb since quiet some time but only
2.6.10 has everything to get rivafb to work at all on newer powerbooks
(NV30 based). The backport would basically be to use the
drivers/video/rivafb/ directory from 2.6.10, everything else make little
sense. This in fact shouldn't be very painfull...
