Keyboard drivers and multimedia keys (Dell Inspiron 8xxxx)

while looking around for a way to make the multimedia keys on my Dell
Inspiron notebook work (in console and/or X), I came across an oldish
(4 months) post here

with a patch to fix the problem. I can of course apply the patch to
my own kernel, but is there a particular reason why it wouldn't get
into mainstream?
