Hm, that's still a few hundred relevant commits intermingled with a
few thousand that likely don't matter ;-) Can you please attempt a
kernel bisect with git? For a nice howto check out
http://www.reactivated.net/weblog/archives/2006/01/using-git-bisect-to-find-buggy-kernel-patches/

Also, can you please check which of the different backlight controls
in /sys/class/backlight work on 3.6 (and whether any of them still
work on 3.7)?

Thanks, Daniel
