I believe this is correct judging by:

Merge of 2.6.34-rc2.
On Monday, nouveau git tree went straight from 2.6.32 to 2.6.34-rc2. One backlight API change
in 2.6.34-rc2 breaks compatibility with older kernels (<
2.6.34-rc2), so people doing out-of-tree builds will have to update
their kernel to rc2. Alternatively, you could try to revert the backlight commit.
