  [MacBookAir7,1] Backlight control broken. Won't turn on after suspend.

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The backlight on the MacBookAir7,1 can't be controlled, changing the
  brightness setting has no effect on the actual screen brightness. If
  you close the lid and the screen turns off it won't turn back on
  again, the keyboard lights turn on and you can see the lcd is on if
  you hold it to the light but the backlight won't turn back on.

  Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 but it also affects 15.10
