Just for the sake of the archives, turns out that on the lenovo T430 and T530 
you should ignore the Lenovo documentation I quoted above, and you can 
indeed use the PrtSc key between Right Alt and Right Ctrl, that key works
just fine for Sysrq.

I have no idea why Lenovo felt they had to document some complicated
alternate software sysrq with Fn+S

Anyway, hope this helps someone.
