Fixed where?

I read this recently in the ibm-acpi devel list. There is a patch, but it is
only for recompiling the kernel, I thought it would came merged in openSUSE
11.1 (I don't want to recompile the kernel).

Do you have a pointer to this patch? If no one tells the suse kernel
developers about such things, how can you expect it to automatically
show up in our kernel? :)

Also, a friend gave me, a couple of day ago, a copy of kubungo 8.10 live cd,
run it in my laptop and the brightness keys works (If I remember well it runs
kernel 2.6.27-7); also it has a visual notification for changing the volume
with the volume up/down/mute keys. If I were not a openSUSE fan, I probably
would install it in my laptop.

That's probably using a userspace tool for this, or the think-pad kernel
module, which we do offer. Have you tried them out?
