Subject: [REGRESSION] Missing nouveau backlight control on 6.2.x kernel


we've received a regression report on openSUSE Bugzilla about the
missing backlight control of nouveau device:

On 6.1, with acpi_video=native option, the system provided
/sys/class/backlight/nv_backlight entry.

On 6.2, with acpi_video=native option, there is no entry in
/sys/class/backlight.  And without acpi_video option, it falls back to
/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0, which doesn't work as expected.

Hans, could you check whether the recent change in video_detect.c (or
anything else) may influence on this?  My gut feeling is that the
culprit could be rather some change in nouveau (so dri-devel is
Cc'ed), but I'm not entirely sure...
