I have a Sandy Bridge laptop (Apple MacBook Pro 8,2) - HD 3000:

vgapci0@pci0:0:2:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x00db106b chip=0x01268086 rev=0x09 
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics 
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

It is running:  FreeBSD pwyll.foxkit.us 11.0-CURRENT #1 r277781M: Mon Jan 26 
18:41:15 CST 2015 r...@pwyll.foxkit.us:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64

I have no issues using acpi_video's sysctls (hw.acpi.video.lcd0.brightness) to 
adjust backlight, though it does not have good granularity.  The stepping is 
about 7, so it goes as 13%..20%..27%..35%..etc.

This program works fine for me on both an older kernel (r277523) and this 
kernel (r277781), after applying some patches to allow the library to build on 
FreeBSD.  It also has better granularity (the stepping is 2-3).

If there is anything I can do/run to aide in debugging why it works for me but 
not others, let me know.
