Bug description:
  CID: 201401-14542 Dell Inspiron 5547

  This issue is similar to bug 1332379, but with I+A config,
  Brightness cannot be controlled without the open-source driver as well.

  1. Install 14.04 + update (3.13.0-29) + fglrx
  2. Try to adjust the screen brightness with hotkeys and "Brightness and Lock" applet

  Expected result:
  * Screen brightness could be adjusted in both ways.

  Actual result:
  * Unable to control screen brightness, the brightness indicator would change according to key press on the hotkeys
