Bug Description

[Impact]
On some ThinkPads, the BIOS reported invalid acpi backlight implement .
Then backlight can't be changed because OS use acpi backlight by default.

[Fix]
Check acpi backlight mode, disable it if invalid.

[Test Case]
Verified on 3 models of thinkpad include Intel/NV/AMD GPU with positive results.

[Regression Potential]
Low
Most ThinkPads now use native backlight control by default.
Check the false acpi mode correctly.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-focal' to 'verification-done-focal'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-focal' to 'verification-failed-focal'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
