Subject[PATCH] Revert "ACPI / video: Add HP EliteBook Revolve 810 to the blacklist"
This reverts commit e18ac62fa4b3f16234bab0d5a6627c57dbae9e7e.

The referenced commit added HP EliteBook Revolve 810 to the ACPI video
detected blacklist so that only the native Intel backlight interface was

However, this turned to be wrong solution after all. The ACPI video
interface works and as long as we only use that there are no problems. So
we can revert this commit and stick to use the backlight interface provided
by the ACPI video driver.

(Using Intel native interface will not work after resume since the ACPI
video driver will restore it's state which takes control over the native
one. That's a separate thing and should be addressed in the ACPI video
driver, I suppose.)

This turned out to be misunderstanding from my side. I should have
investigated this further before submitting the original patch. Sorry about


Thanks for the investigation and pointing me to the right direction (e.g to
use acpi_video0 over the native one).
