  many laptop models need the same volume-key release quirk

Status in “udev” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: udev

  Many laptop models need the same volume-key release quirk.  Currently,
  two models have identical force-release-maps/ keymap files (dell-
  studio-1557 and fujitsu-amilo-si1848) and two more need to be added
  (Mitac LP: #374884 and Coolbox QBook LP: #420473).

  I propose replacing the identical force-release-maps/ files with one
  'common-volume-keys' file to make adding new models easier.

  Note: I do not see any obvious dmidecode commonality between the
  models needing the quirk (i.e. they do not all share the same BIOS),
  so I think that it will remain necessary to scan for each model
  separately in 95-keyboard-force-release.rules.
