What X display server are you using (fbdev or other ?). Also I see a few
writes to the brightness in the log - did you fiddle with the brightness
by hand at all ?

Either way I suspect the only way to find this is to verify a
configuration it occurs on, go back a kernel, verify it doesn't happen
there and then build a kernel to the point in the git tree before the
gma500 patches were changed (to check its not caused by something else
such as an ACPI change), then try and find which one caused it.

That will be tedious but unfortunately I've got no documentation or other
good ways to chase this down.
