[keymap] Advent 8117: Volume control keys lock keyboard

Bug Description

When I adjust the volume on my laptop using the keys (Fn+F5/F6) the keys repeat (making the volume go all the way up/down) and then try to continue increasing/decreasing.

Not only can I not adjust the volume properly (set to a medium vol) I can no longer use any text input field (the keyboard no longer works), and the system icons (top right, volume etc.) no longer respond to mouse clicks.

First noticed on 13.04, but same problem found with 12.10 (usb boot).
Is there some driver I need to install to fix this? (Advent laptop 8117, intel dual core T2080 1.73GHz)
BIOS doesn't apear to be updateable

I read though the info at wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting but don't understand it fully.
I seems to be like the problem described in 'Step by Step Troubleshooting' 4.b.
Not sure how to capture it (keyboard locks when I recreate fault anyway)

affects: ubuntu → udev (Ubuntu)

1)$ /lib/udev/findkeyboards
AT keyboard: input/event4

2)$ sudo /lib/udev/keymap -i input/event4
(scan codes looked ok)
keys repeat!

I can't find file like "95-keyboard-force-release.rules" in /lib/udev/keymaps/

3)$ cat /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor
$ cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_name

4)$udevadm info --export-db
(see attachment)

5) ?

6) Should all be here
     Not sure what to do about key release rules
     Do I need to create the 95-keyboard... file in /lib/udev/keymaps/ ? Containing what exactly?

systemd (204-0ubuntu5) saucy; urgency=low

  * Add 0000-upstream-keymaps.patch: Backport latest keymap fixes from
    upstream, as we won't be able to update to newer upstream releases anytime
    soon. (LP: #1193147, #1157334, #1152377, #1012365, #727139)
  * Refresh our patches to apply cleanly.
