Sorry to reply to myself.

I was just looking at the config for other brands of laptop. The FDI
for sony machines expects a device called "Sony Vaio Keys" and looking
in the source for the sony-laptop driver shows that this device is
indeed provided. (The same goes for Thinkpads.)

However, it does not look like the asus-laptop driver provides any
device called "Asus Extra Buttons".

I'd be amazed if the config that exists in
30-keymap-module-asus-laptop.fdi works at all!

Is this an omission in the asus-laptop driver? Would I need to
implement an input device driver to get it working?
