I wonder if this is the same as described in my comment (however, I'm using Kamal's PPA kernel with brightness controls for i915 family).

If it's still an issue in oneiric, can you please follow the "fixing broken keys" section in /usr/share/doc/udev/README.keymap.txt.gz and add the info here? Thanks
