[Bug 1339998] Re: [Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme 7204] Microphone mute key does not work


Does this actually need to be fixed on the kernel side in Trusty? I'm a
bit confused by the "fix released" status of linux in utopic, as far as
I know most issues can be fixed in udev's keymaps alone?

Bug description:
  CID: 201402-14663 Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme

  The microphone mute key does not work on this system, so as its LED

  1. Install 14.04 + update (3.13.0-30), boot to desktop
  2. Try to mute the microphone with the hotkey (fn+F4)

  Expected results:
  * Mic mute key should work, its LED should be lit and the "Mute" option for input device should be ticked after you press the mic mute key.

  Actual result:
  * Nothing happened.

  Debugging information:
