This was the main patch where I wanted the bigger picture ;-) and TBH
I'm still in two minds here. I don't personally view fbcon as
inconsistent, more that, as an in-kernel service it might have to do
more that something more complicated than freak out and let userspace
decide what to do next.

However... since I'm struggling to make up my mind, I can't think of
many products that would ship reliant exclusively on fbcon *and* this
patch is more about fbcon than backlight then I figure that, from a
backlight perspective:
