Well, this seems not to be the case, I have only one acpi_video:

calvin ~ # ls -l /sys/class/backlight/
totale 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 20 dic 09.20 acpi_video0 -> 
../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/backlight/acpi_video0

calvin ~ # ls -l /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/backlight
totale 0
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 0 20 dic 09.20 acpi_video0
