Log for hardware description

On clean install of Fedora 31 without modifying anything the brightness slider is shown in GNOME shell when it should be disabled because it has no use on desktop system. Installing and clicking on the right side of the top panel shows slider which shouldn't be there. This bug was previously posted on GNOME shell issues GitLab page and I as a poster of this bug was redirected here. Attachment to the GNOME GitLab issue is provided also as well as dmidecode.log per instructions.

Thanks, I have written a kernel patch which should fix this.

Here is a scratch-build of the kernel with the the patch added, please give this a test run:

Note this is still building atm, it should be done in a couple of hours.

See here for generic instructions for installing a kernel directly from koji:

Note if you not have time to test right away, please at least download the files indicated in the instructions, test builds get removed after a couple of days to cleanup disk-space.
