Hi all,

I was looking at the bug "Kernel panic when turning off screen backlight using laptop Fn key":


The oops is caused by the null pointer dereference in the module ideapad-laptop.c and it affects, as the name says, almost all Lenovo Ideapad laptops/netbooks.

It is a regression in the kernel 3.1 and a patch is available here:


The Fedora's package kernel-3.1.0-7.fc16.src.rpm is not patched.

Would it be possible to include the patch in the final F16?
