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)
