[Pommed-devel] MacBookPro7,1 support

drivers/video/backlight/mbp_nvidia_bl.c contains no references to 6,1 nor
7,1... I don't know if simply duplicating the 5,5 configuration for 7,1 may
work... I'll give a try tonight, but I've actually no hope.
The graphics card in 7,1 is a Geforce 320M, which seems quite different from
the card in 5,5.
As long as /sys/class/backlight is empty, there is no hope to have brightness
control, right? Or are there other means to change the brightness than writing
into a /sys "file"?
