Subject[PATCH] asus-wireless: send an EV_SYN/SYN_REPORT between state changes
Sending the switch state change twice within the same frame is invalid evdev
protocol and only works if the client handles keys immediately as well.
Processing events immediately is incorrect, it forces a fake order of events
that does not exist on the device.

Recent versions of libinput changed to only process the device state and
SYN_REPORT time, so now the key event is lost.
