I own a Sony VAIO laptop that uses ACPI for setting screen brightness

I'd like this patch to be merged in mainline, so that I won't be forced anymore to patch
the kernel by hand or to use the -mm patchset.
Is there something that prevents this to happen?

Wrong interface?

Convert it to use /sys/class/backlight sysfs interface...

although I've not tested if it can be still applied correctly:
