Bug Description

CID: 201706-25581 Dell Inspiron 7577

  1. Install Bionic + update with LiveUSB
  2. Boot to the desktop
  3. Press the Wireless key (Fn+ PrtScr) to kill wireless connection

  The Wireless key is not working, from the dmesg it complains:

[ 119.854458] dell_wmi: Unknown key with type 0x0010 and code 0xe008 pressed

$ sudo showkey -k
kb mode was ?UNKNOWN?
[ if you are trying this under X, it might not work
since the X server is also reading /dev/console ]

press any key (program terminates 10s after last keypress)...
keycode 240 press
keycode 247 press
keycode 247 release

Nothing from showkey -s
