After update to Debian Stretch, I'm having problem with function keys on
T440s. On Jessie, everything worked out of the box, but now volume up
and down, screen brightness and mic mute don't work. Sound mute work,
but only partialy. Led indicator doesn't turns on and it just mute the
sound, it doesn't toggle it, like before.
$ cat /proc/acpi/ibm/volume
thinkpad_acpi is loaded.
lsmod |grep thinkpad
thinkpad_acpi 86016 1
nvram 16384 1 thinkpad_acpi

Here is dmesg:
dmesg | grep thinkpad

So, it seams that thinkpad_acpi disables the brightnes control.
xbacklight doesn't work either.
$ xbacklight -get
No outputs have backlight property
$ ls /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/
actual_brightness bl_power brightness device max_brightness power subsystem type uevent
I tried various kernel options:
in all combinations, without success.
I also tried linux-image-4.11.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 kernel, but still no joy.
Tried old kernel, 3.16.0-4, too, but this time it didn't work either.
I'm using 4.9.0-3 at the moment.
Any idea what could be wrong?
