After upgrading to some more recent kernel (.33, .34rc6 atm) all the
issues with non-working brightness controls / Fn keys were gone as well.
You can get recent kernel from the Mainline ppa:


As a sidenote, i think my battery lasts way longer with .34 - powertop
shows power draw below 6W sometimes. I never had such figures with
9.10 / kernel .31.

Good luck,
