eject key not mapped correctly - alienware m14xr1

Bug Description

Following directions from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting

The eject key (Fn + F6) is not mapped correctly for my system:
sys_vendor Alienware
product_name M14xR1

All other keys (media, volume, brightness, wireless) are working correctly
There are a few other keys that do nothing, however I am not completely sure what they should do. I will boot windows and check later.

Description: Ubuntu 11.10
Release: 11.10

  Installed: 173-0ubuntu4
  Candidate: 173-0ubuntu4
  Version table:
 *** 173-0ubuntu4 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

To fix I created a keymap file and added a rule for it in /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules

This bug was fixed in the package udev - 175-0ubuntu4

udev (175-0ubuntu4) precise; urgency=low

  * Add builtin-block-polling.patch: Set default polling interval on CD drives
    as well. The events_dfl_poll_msecs will not trigger if "block" is not a
    module, but built in. This will avoid udisks etc. having to poll from
    userspace, and provide proper ejection when the hardware eject button is
    pressed. (LP: #890592)
  * Add 00git-keymaps.patch: Backport keymaps from current git master.
    (LP: #901513, #902332, #902798, #914838, #922405)
  * Add 00git-persistent-net-xen.patch: 75-persistent-net-generator.rules: Add
    Xen. (LP: #897789)
