Subject[PATCH 2.6.29] eeepc-laptop: report brightness control events via the input layer
This maps the brightness control events to one of two keys, either
KEY_BRIGHTNESSDOWN or KEY_BRIGHTNESSUP, as needed.

Some mapping has to be done due to the fact that the BIOS reports them as
<base value> + <current brightness index>; the selection is done according to
the sign of the change in brightness (if this is 0, no keypress is reported).
