Oh... that actually does seem to be the case. I did a cherry-pick
of just the commit I mentioned on top of 3.8.6 and it seems I resolved
the conflict by including in changes for both. The conflict came up as:

<<<<<<< HEAD
/* Acer Aspire 4736Z */
{ 0x2a42, 0x1025, 0x0260, quirk_invert_brightness },
/* Acer/eMachines G725 */
{ 0x2a42, 0x1025, 0x0210, quirk_invert_brightness },

/* Acer/eMachines e725 */
{ 0x2a42, 0x1025, 0x0212, quirk_invert_brightness },
>>>>>>> 01e3a8f... drm/i915: add quirk to invert brightness on eMachines e725

Thanks for catching that.

Yeah. I'm happy to split them up and send them out separately. Or if
Greg wants to just list both upstream commit IDs with a single backport,
that would also be fine.
