SubjectRe: Dell Studio 1555 eject key does not work ( small patch to fix included )
Hello all,

My bios version is A08 , I see that A11 was recently released but the
changelog doesn't say much.

Which is better, upgrade and hope the problem goes away, or wait until
we have a fix that is agreed upon ?
