Thanks for your work, I've tested my previous version on Debian Wheezy
with a T420 Laptop, and it works as expected, using sysvinit and
systemd, 3.2 and 3.7 kernels, all of them are ok. I tried to install
my version of bbswitch and bumblebee on Ubuntu, but it appears that
upstart needs more tuning, which I haven't worked on yet. If you have
interest in it please have a try.
