To get this keep the previous state after suspend/resume cycles, we
should probably merge this [1] too, but I'm waiting for this being
included in the official tree.

  Add support to thinkpad keyboard backlight

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed
Status in linux source package in Yakkety:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Please backport this patch [1] to Ubuntu kernel (mostly Xenial, as I
  guess Yakety will include it): it adds support to keyboard backlight
  in new thinkpads, exposing the sysnode that UPower (and unity/gnome
  settings daemon) needs to control it.
