Bug description:
  CID: 201306-13867 Dell Inspiron 7537

  The wireless key is not working on this system.
  1, Install 14.04 + update (3.13.0-30), boot to desktop
  2. Try to disable the wireless network / Bluetooth by pressing the wireless key

  Expected result:
  * Wireless network / Bluetooth should be disabled.

  Actual result:
  * Nothing happened

  Debug information:
  ubuntu@201306-13867:~$ sudo showkey -k
  kb mode was ?UNKNOWN?
  [ if you are trying this under X, it might not work

  keycode 240 press
  ^Ccaught signal 2, cleaning up...

  xev cannot detect any wireless key event
