Yes, please try Takashi's previous patch. 

I am tracing bko#34142, but this issue does not related to your
backlight control, because there have _BCM, _BQC declare in your DSDT,
your machine MUST SUPPORTED by standard acpi backlight interface.

Even the acer-wmi can probed on your machine, it cann't help anything
for your backlight control.


Thank's a lot!
