Bug Description

With linux-image-2.6.35-26-generic (version 2.6.35-26.46) from maverick-proposed, my ThinkVantage key on a Lenovo T61 sends a keycode (360) that cannot be handled by the X server.

If I boot my previous kernel (linux-image-2.6.35-27-generic, version 2.6.35-27.47), the key correctly sends a keycode that's mapped to XF861Launch.

As far as I can tell, this was caused by the new kernel rejecting udev's attempts to remap that key:

    $ sudo /lib/udev/keymap /dev/input/by-path/platform-thinkpad_acpi-event module-lenovo
    EVIOCGKEYCODE: Invalid argument
