SubjectRE: Dell Studio 1555 eject key does not work ( small patch to fix included )
Hi Islam Amer

I got report that "Ubuntu 10.04 + BIOS A11" was tested and the "Eject CD" key is working
as expected. Sorry, I couldn't find any Studio 1555 to test myself and cannot provide you
with more details.

Also, you may try acpi_osi="Windows 2009" kernel parameter and see if there is any difference.

Thanks..
