xrandr --verbose output for laptop

Guys, thanks for the attention to this. I've attached the output of `xrandr
--verbose` but I cannot find any advertisement of backlight control (It may be
staring me in the face and I'm just missing it).

As mentioned, I currently have the nouveau driver installed (with a inotifywait
watch set on acpi_video0 to update nv_backlight/brightness with any changes). I
can re-install the NVidia drivers if you need information from the box with the
drivers installed. It is truly blinding on max_brightness.

Let me know if you need/want anything else. Again, I'm happy to help.
