[ubuntu-uk] Hardy Issues

I am seeing a number of issues in Hardy generally related I think to
running it on an IBM Thinkpad (X22).

- The hardware volume control buttons (mute, up, down) do not seem to
interact with the software mixer and only control the hardware volume. I
tried mapping them in keyboard shortcut settings to no avail.

- The hardware brightness up/down buttons work but no longer provide the
usual gnome dialogue displaying the brightness.

- The brightness adjusts itself for power saving I assume but its
totally erratic and generally annoying.

Has anybody seen anything like this and got a solution? Seems quite
broken when a release is not far away considering all this used to work.
