Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: the wireless key does not work on this system.
Fix: cherry pick a simple blacklist patch
Testcase: already tested in OEM projects

CID: 201404-14998 Dell Vostro 3546

The wireless key does not work on this system.
With wireless key press, keycode 240 could be captured by sudo showkey -k, but the scancode can't be detected with sudo showkey -s

With xev:
KeyPress event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x3e00001,
    root 0x9c, subw 0x0, time 9313601, (-66,498), root:(721,550),
    state 0x10, keycode 248 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x3e00001,
    root 0x9c, subw 0x0, time 9313601, (-66,498), root:(721,550),
    state 0x10, keycode 248 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
