Thanks. Obviously this remote has broken report descriptor -- it generates
0xfa usage code from Consumer page for the "back" key (not to mention that
it should rather generate 0x224 for KEY_BACK), but logical maximum for
coresponding field is set to 0xf9, as far as I can see from the dump you

I have met such devices already, we are fixing their report descriptors on
the fly before they enter the HID parser. I will prepare a patch for you
to test (probably tomorrow, sorry).

BTW this also means that the support for the BACK key can't currently be
written in userspace using the setkeycodes() method, because this usage is
currently just ignored, due to being out of range.
