Adding Jani, since iirc he looked at the entire backlight Kconfig
story before. I think there's some nonsense going on where in some
cases you don't get reasonable dummy functions where it just doesn't
make sense. Or something like that.

At least the entire select vs depends on backlight sounds eerily familiar.
