The level of support for ACPI, especially in terms of system monitoring,

battery state on my machine.
What is and isn't supported, or what causes an oops, varies
semi-randomly from kernel version to kernel version. APM just works on

They supply keycodes, vis:
! The "Internet" key panel on the left.
keycode 236 = F13
keycode 178 = F14
keycode 229 = F15
keycode 230 = F16
keycode 231 = F17
keycode 232 = F18
! The page left and right keys...
keycode 234 = F19
keycode 233 = F20
! The 'Fn' key.
! keycode 227 = ???
