As said previously, this seems to be exactly upstream kernel bug

I have worked around the problem by unloading modules 'ac', 'battery'
and 'thermal'.

Also, problem appears when there is intensive use of ACPI events (e.g.
when on battery) and/or when using the wireless adapter.

I agree with Sardar that IT IS VERY WEIRD that problems does not arise
in Windows but only in Linux.

On the kernel bugzilla I have suggested, upon G. Schmitt's hint, to use
an approach similar to that in kernel bug
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12021 with a modified version
of this patch

Perhaps Windows already fixes the key-up event for this hardware? Or the
problem relies in the EC tables? Who knows...
