comment Reliably remapping keys per input device
This is so far completely stable, so marking as accepted. However, I think my original question points to a keymapping problem in KDE (?) that they should probably fix, and this issue is not yet resolved. Maybe somebody else will handle that :)

comment Is ext4 position independent and movable?
(I ended up chickening out, removing files until I could copy the contents from my old partition into a new 40GB partition. I then removed the partitions from the partition table and created a new one to span all the 40+70 GBs, and resized the filesystem with resize2fs. Nevertheless, I would like to know whether or not it could have worked with moving the filesystem with dd)

comment Is ext4 position independent and movable?
GParted refuses to operate on my ext4 partition because the filesystem has enabled features that are unsupported by GParted. Further, GParted warns me not to use its filesystem support, so I'd prefer not to go that route :)

comment Is ext4 position independent and movable?
clonezilla seems to require full copies. I'm a bit stretched on space, so I'm contemplating doing something dangerous--moving the 70GB filesystem forwards by 40GB, overwriting parts of the original in the operation. Yes, yes, I know it's not smart :)

comment Preserve screen backlight intensity over sleep
acpi_backlight=vendor did the trick! Now, /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0 has disappeared, so KDE selects intel_backlight automatically, and this backlight value is now persisted over a sleep. Thanks :) @saiarcot895 Will you write this up as an answer for me to accept and others to find easily?

@saiarcot895 Out of interest, do acpi_video0 and intel_backlight correspond for you both ways? I mean, does writing to either one of them have effect in both places?

comment Preserve screen backlight intensity over sleep
@saiarcot895 Yes. For example: I set acpi_video0/brightness to 1, cat intel_backlight/brightness reads 119. I then set intel_backlight/brightness to 1808 (its max_brightness). Now, acpi_video0/backlight still reads 1.

comment Preserve screen backlight intensity over sleep
@saiarcot895 Interesting. For me, the opposite happens; When I write to acpi_video0, I can observe changes in intel_backlight. However, when I write to intel_backlight, the value in acpi_video0/backlight remains at the level it was before. If I could have the behavior you describe, that might solve this problem.

comment Preserve screen backlight intensity over sleep
For all I know, the solution could be to control with intel_backlight, but write the closest corresponding value to acpi_video0 upon sleep (and possibly read from acpi_video0 and write the corresponding value to intel_backlight upon wake). Which software would I need to change in order to make this happen reliably?

comment Broadcom card-reader BCM57765/BCM57785 doesn't work on ubuntu `12.04 LTS
I ended up making a bug report for the linux kernel, along with a workaround that I have found working for me: thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mmc/27194 (Related Ubuntu-bug: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1307674)
