Yeah I think we can do this entirely ad-hoc, i.e. any time the backlight
wheel wobbles off again we nail it down for good for that driver with a
depends on BACKGLIGHT and remove any lingering #ifdef all over.

If you want maybe start out with the biggest drm drivers in a series, I
think if nouveau/amdgpu/i915 folks ack this you're good to go to just
convert as things get in the way.
