yeah - we need both i suspect. we need the pmu to be able to handle touhscreen
and bring up bakclight OR be able to turn that behavior off (it should be
software controlled in the kenrel). userspace needs to be able to tell the

* shut down touchscreen and generate no interupts at all
* enable touchscreen (interrupts) (and wake up cpu when they happen)
* disable balckight turn-on on wakeup
* enable backlight turn-on on wakeup

DEFAULT (imho) would be:
* enable touchscreen interrupts
* enable backlight on wakeup

the rest then is userspace (xserver and then above that wm/desktop and apps)
making all the higher level decisions
