    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 ?
