[Bug 232170] Re: EeePC Volume and Wireless Hotkeys Do Not Function Out-Of-The-Box with Ubuntu (8.04 Hardy LTS, Intrepid Alpha 1)
Any chance a backport of the last Matthew Garrett's patch (mentioned here above by Sitsofe) get in the Jaunty release ?
Or will we have to patch it our self and wait for Karmic ?
If there is something missing for this patch to get in, let me know what

The Asus EeePC is a popular subnotebook computer.
With a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) the wireless (fn+f2) and volume hotkeys (fn+f7/f8/f9) do not function.
fn+f2: Toggle wireless
fn+f8: Volume up
fn+f9: Volume down
Workarounds are documented here:

Although I have not had much success at getting these working myself.
It would be great if these would work out-of-the-box with 8.04.1 or Intrepid.
