The issue happens in more than just "my broken box", and yes,
reverting that patch would help (in more than just my box), in the
sense that at least Linux won't boot into a black screen.

But the backlight control still wouldn't work, as it hasn't worked
since v3.7, possibly in many ASUS laptops, for that you need more than
just reverting efaa14c.
