[Impact]
Micmute hotkey on many HP EliteBooks don't work.

[Fix]
Commit b6eb208b29ae ("hwdb: Add EliteBook to use micmute hotkey"), to map AT keyboard's scancode to micmute hotkey.

[Test]
With the one-liner fix, micmute hotkey works on all the EliteBooks I tested.

[Regression Potential]
The hwdb originally only matches a few EliteBook, and fix changes that to match all EliteBook models. So if there's an EliteBook that uses the scancode for other purpose, there will be a regression.
However, the risk is rather slim because HP is confident that all EliteBooks use the same scancode for mic mute hotkey.
