  [Dell Inspiron 11 - 3147] Brightness control does not work on this

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  CID: 201403-14888 Dell Inspiron 11 - 3147

  The screen brightness cannot be controlled by the hotkey.

  1. Install 14.04 + update (3.13.0-30), boot to desktop
  2. Try to control brightness with the hotkey
  3. Try to control brightness with "Brightness and Lock" applet

  Expected result:
  * Brightness could be controlled by the hotkey or the applet

  Actual result:
  * Brightness level indicator changed along with the hotkey, but the brightness won't be changed at all.
