I packaged 'ibm-acpi', an ACPI driver for IBM Thinkpads, which allows
you for example to map the Fn keys. The kernel driver is going to be
part of kernel 2.6.10 and the scripts will be probably someday
integrated in acpid, but still it might be useful for the time being.
The package is available here:
Here is the ITP (#278027):

Description : Driver for IBM laptops extending ACPI support on Linux
This driver extends the ACPI subsystem of IBM Thinkpads running Linux to
support new features that wouldn't otherwise be available.
Supported features include hotkeys control, bluetooth control, video
switching, Thinklight control, docking, and bay support. CMOS, LED and
beeps control are still experimental.
Currently supported models include A21e, A22p, A30p, A31, A31p, G40,
R32, R40, R40e, R50, R50p, R51, T20, T21, T23, T30, T40, T40p, T41,
T41p, T42, T42p, X20, X31, and X40.
Could somebody sponsor it?
