You are right, sequence of 

sudo sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.lcd_brightness=6; sudo sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.lcd_brightness=3

causes device disconnect:

ahcich1: DISCONNECT requested
ahcich1: AHCI reset...
ahcich1: SATA connect timeout time=10000us status=00000000
ahcich1: AHCI reset: device not found
(ada1:ahcich1:0:0:0): lost device
(pass1:ahcich1:0:0:0): lost device
(pass1:ahcich1:0:0:0): removing device entry
