[Libreboot] Brightness adjustment on Parabola (Arch) GNU/Linux for X200

Dear libreboot community, congratulations and big thanks to the devs and maintainers.

I'm trying to get brightness keys to work on my X200 running libreboot (rel 20150518). They work perfectly on Trisquel or Debian, but *not* in Arch or Parabola with standard 4.x kernel (linux-libre, linux-libre-lts). So I was wondering if the collective knowledge of the alias could help me here :)

The only way I could eventually work around brightness keys to work on my Parabola install was by using acpid and having a script intercept the key presses (you can find a reference to the principle I used here

Before going that way, I tried without luck to pass all the various kernel options as mentioned in this document:
after I noticed the dmesg log:

thinkpad_acpi: Lenovo ThinkPad X200, model 74591P0
thinkpad_acpi: detected a 8-level brightness capable ThinkPad
thinkpad_acpi: This ThinkPad has standard ACPI backlight brightness control, supported by the ACPI video driver
thinkpad_acpi: Disabling thinkpad-acpi brightness events by default...
thinkpad_acpi: Standard ACPI backlight interface available, not loading native one

(without any kernel option, under /sys/class/backlight I only have intel_backlight).

Any experience on your side that could be useful in resolving this situation? It's not a big deal, I'm just curious to get the brightness keys working in console mode with native kernel support instead of acpid :)

Warm regards,
