I have seen reports from newer "vista-ok" thinkpads going bananas over
ec_intr=1, mishandling (again) the brightness keys/events, and suddenly
people started trying to handle the volume up/down/mute keys in userspace,
which is something nobody ever needed to do on the older 4x series, as they
just worked (same for brighness).

It is not definite yet, but it certainly has me worried.
