I don't how to give more specifics but I'm using Dell Inspiron 15R
N5010 laptop and the screen is built-in Dell's. I guess I need to
provide device id or something but I have no idea how to get that. :(

Another observation:
I can change the brightness (increase/decrease) while FreeBSD is
booting so it looks like FreeBSD does properly loads the driver
controlling the brightness change. (?)
