    Anyone know how to fix the build error?

    CC arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s
    In file included from include/linux/irq.h:22:0,
    from /src/linux-3.5/arch/x86/include/asm/hardirq.h:5,
    from include/linux/hardirq.h:7,
    from arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c:11:
    include/linux/irqnr.h:4:30: fatal error: uapi/linux/irqnr.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    make[1]: *** [arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 1

    Ignore the 3.5 I patched up from there.

    No PRIME power management?

    Hopefully it'll merge soon. 3.8 is so far away.

    I managed to fix my build error with just:

    touch include/uapi/linux/irqnr.h

    It seems that it needs the file to exist and fails build without it, but for some reason my patch isn't creating an empty file, which apparently it's meant to do with the --git parameter..

    "
    diff --git a/include/uapi/linux/irqnr.h b/include/uapi/linux/irqnr.h
    new file mode 100644
    index 000000000000..e69de29bb2d1
    "
    is in the path file.

    this kernel fixed my problems with backlight dimming in my asus k55vm, also best work with fn keys.
    But slow boot compared to 3.6.1
