Please consider unblocking planned upload of package mate-power-manager

The planned upload will fix #766749.

  * debian/patches:
    + Add 0001_fix-backlight-popup-gtkbuilder.patch. Fix GTKBuilder script for
      media keys popup window. (Closes: #766749).

-> In early-stage uploads of mate-power-manager, pressing the brightness
or volume hardware media keys (e.g. on notebooks, also some other keys
were/are supported) resulted in a little pop-up window containing an icon
(a speaker symbols or a brightness symbol) and a meter bar (for showing
the current volume or display brightness). While continuously pressing
those keys, the meter bar showed the volume (or brightness) change.

With upload of some previous version of mate-power-manager, this popup
window got broken and one could only see a grey square in the lower
middle of the screen when pressing such media keys. No icon anymore, no
meter bar.

The patch provided with this upload brings back the earlier and expected
behaviour when pressing such media keys.

For complete upstream bug history and some screenshots, see [1].
