Great news for at least Asus UX305FA users and a lot more!
It turns out that a lot of issues are fixed in the drm-intel-next branch of the kernel (I was tipped off by Hans de Goede, thank you Hans).

I tried todays build that can be found here:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/drm-intel-next/

Install the debs as usual (dkpg -i), reboot.
For me the brightness buttons just work and send an event properly now, I also get the indicator.

I hope this works for more people, it will be a matter of time before it's in the main line I guess.
cheers
