[Bug 1173725] Re: [Acer Aspire V5-171] Backlight cannot be adjusted unless passing acpi_backlight=vendor


will do, as soon as I get it booting into ubuntu again. 
Apparently update-grub (or rather grub-probe) doesn't work when chrooting into a root partition if it's btrfs, so I'm gonna try booting through a efi booter from another computer running the same kernelversion of 14.04.. 
I'm quite pissed at myself for not backing up the EFI partition before doing a BIOS update from windows... <_<
