UBUNTU: SAUCE (no-up) Provide a param for allowing the BIOS to handle changing the brightness on AC/battery status changes.
 
BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/949311

We currently carry a SAUCE patch which lets the OS handle the brightness
levels automatically when connecting/disconnecting AC. There are some
laptops (MSI Wind) for which this doesn't work. Provide a driver param
which allows this behaviour to be overriden.
