No - this is a dock eject key, not a CD eject key.

Surely they should just be checking the rfkill type?

Please don't do that - the kernel shouldn't be consuming the brightness
events itself, that should be left up to userspace. The ACPI video

You support rfkill, so I'm not sure there's a benefit in exposing the
same functionality via a custom sysfs node.
