907aa265fde6589b8059dc51649c6d1f49ade2f3 ("drm/drm_panel: fix EXPORT of
drm_panel_of_backlight") is fixing drm_panel_of_backlight(), but the
error above is for backlight_device_register().

From what I can tell, that commit is actually the cause of the error -
now intel_backlight_device_register() is being included in the kernel
even though it calls backlight_device_register() which is in a module.
Of course it also fixed the original error, so reverting it isn't any
use.

The below Kconfig change fixes the build for me, but I've no idea
whether this is the correct fix.
