Bug Description

Problem: Keyboard Volume up/down keys not work after installation

If I set in keyboard control panel another shortcut for volume up/down (Ctrl+arrows) - this works right.
If I set in keyboard control panel volume up/down keys from my keyboard, this assigned in control panel, but not works, even after restart.

Pre-Diagnosis: No keydown event for volume_up/volume down
Guide: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting
System: Recently installed Ubuntu 14.10 x64
Keyboard: Genius GK-110001 (PS/2)

xev application gets only release event (example for vol down):

Reassigning to X.org's evdev driver then. If evtest gets the correct events, then kernel, keymaps, and evdev are alright, but it seems the press events somehow get lost in X.org's input driver.

affects: systemd (Ubuntu) → xserver-xorg-input-evdev (Ubuntu)
