[Bug 815914] Re: dell_wmi: Unknown key eXXX pressed


Old bug, I would like to ask:

Does linux report key press to userspace (scan code via "AT Translated
Set 2 keyboard") when "Shortcut key" or "Audio Panel key" is pressed on
Dell XPS 15 laptop (L502X)? Because now dell-wmi receive events for
those two keys, but ignore/drop it.

Bug description:
  I got a new Dell XPS 15 laptop (L502X).

  Now when i'm changing the volume with the hotkeys, dmesg throws me the
  following errors:

  [16971.294903] dell_wmi: Unknown key e0f8 pressed
  [16985.978025] dell_wmi: Unknown key e0f7 pressed
  [16986.731775] dell_wmi: Unknown key e0f9 pressed

  The keys actually work, but the WMI doesn't seem to be supported yet.
  Is there any chance to fix this?

  If you need additional information, feel free to ask!
