Bug Description

[Impact]
After upgrading to unity and compiz in xenial-proposed my volume up and down keys stopped autorepeating, which seems to be fallout from the fix for https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1572241

[Test Case]
#1. Hold the volume up/down keys
#2. Make sure the keys auto-repeat and you can turn up/down the volume holding the volume up/down keys

[Possible Regressions]
Nothing known.
