However, I cannot reproduce it with mainline kernel 3.14-rc1.

1. make pxa255-idp_defconfig
2. Enabling all boards
   (System Type -> Intel PXA2xx/PXA3xx Implementations -> ...)
3. Enabling all available backlight drivers as compiled-in objects (y)

In this case, the LM3630A and LP855X backlight drivers are compiled
properly as below:

  drivers/video/backlight/lm3630a_bl.o
  drivers/video/backlight/lp855x_bl.o

Would you check it with mainline kernel 3.14-rc1?
If the errors happen, please attach the .config file.

Best regards,
