Bug#569892: xbacklight: after having worked before, now just prints "No outputs have backlight property"

reassign 569892 linux-2.6
retitle 569892 [drm/i915] doesn't fall back to native backlight method without a platform driver

Not xbacklight's fault.

xserver-xorg-video-intel used to offer a few methods for changing the
backlight, defaulting to platform drivers providing
/sys/class/backlight/*.  With KMS the i915 driver should probably
provide a fallback if there's no platform driver for backlight.
