after reading the code comment I am not sure if an incorrect
configuration was the source of that author's problem. The comment
describes the fact that the display is turned OFF for some reason. But
using the serverscreen will only turn the backlight ON.
However, I will commit your 'fix' because currently the backlight
feature is completely disabled and we therefore will never get any
feedback if its correctly working or not.
BTW: You don't need to submit patches more than once. Just reply to your
old mail or send a link to the mailing list archive.
