BACKLIGHT_LCD_SUPPORT so there are no other meta options to avoid.
HAS_IOMEM comes from drivers/video/Kconfig's "Graphics support", and I
guess we can ignore it.

I don't quite understand what purpose does BACKLIGHT_LCD_SUPPORT serve.
It doesn't enable any code, it just opens up new Kconfig options. Why
can't the Kconfig options be always available? It's just another option
to 'select', without any reason I can see.
