  [    2.513354] dell_laptop: Setting old previous keyboard state

  How do I fix this problem?

A quick googling suggests that this might be to do with your keyboard
backlight. See https://github.com/dell/libsmbios/issues/3

In summary, though, your options are to either build a new libsmbios
using the code from github (as it looks like the fix hasn't been
released yet) or put up with a potentially wonky keyboard backlight
until the fix makes its way to Debian.

For more information, please reread.
