Niels, something just occourred to me. Is your problem the hotkeys, or the
brightness control itself? Check /sys/class/backlight/*, please. What do
you have in there? Does it work?

If it is the hotkeys, make sure you either have the legacy ACPI events
enabled in kconfig, or that you have something tied to the thinkpad-acpi
input device (no, HAL doesn't do it _yet_, it just forwards the events to
