This shouldn't actually be necessary; the driver bits for the E3
backlight/video display have already gone into the OMAP tree. The OMAP
PWL actually controls the contrast of the screen rather than the
backlight intensity, which is why I didn't end up going down the route
of a backlight class driver.
