Subject[PATCH 1/3] dell-wmi: Mask off upper bytes of event response
Date
From: Mario Limonciello <mario_limonciello@dell.com>

From: Mario Limonciello <mario_limonciello@dell.com>

In debugging with some future machines that actually contain BIOS level
support for dell-wmi, I've determined that the upper half of the data
that comes back from wmi_get_event_data may sometimes contain extra
information that isn't currently relevant when pulling scan codes out of
the data. This causes dell-wmi to improperly respond to these events.
