Do you have the Samsung specific tools installed?

Not everything works 100%, but it might stop the brightness cycling as 
it appears to some updates for backlight management.

There is also this in the forums: 
Which discusses this exact issue and references the Samsung tools (as 
well as some other power tweaks).

There are no bugs in Launchpad about this cycling issue; but there are 
some about brightness keys not working which reference the above tools. 
  Might be worth your while raising a bug I guess.

I did stumble across this though: 
So all the answers seem to lead to the same place.

I only know about this set of tools because I was seriously considering 
a Samsung NP535 or similar.  Just waiting for the post-Yule sales.
