Please test if this works if you rebuild the HAL SRPM with --with-dell-backlight
- notably you need libsmbios-devel, libsmbios for this. Just waiting for the
damn merge to happen so we can make this change in Fedora. Thanks.

It works, kind of:
- the dcdbas module isn't loaded automatically
- the brightness is still handled in hardware, and that causes major confusion
(especially when enabling the automatic light sensor brightness, as in bug 237768)
Just need to wait for it to be tagged now.
Will be in f7-final. Yay!
