thinkpad-acpi: handle HKEY 0x4010, 0x4011 events
Handle events 0x4010 and 0x4011 so that we do not pester users about them. These events report when the thinkpad is docked/undocked to a native hotplug dock (i.e. one that does not need ACPI handling, nor is represented in the ACPI device tree). Such docks are based on USB 2.0/3.0, and also work as port replicators. We really want a proper dock class to report these, or at least new input EV_SW events. Since it is not clear which one to use yet, keep reporting them as vendor-specific ThinkPad events. WARNING: As defined by the thinkpad-acpi sysfs ABI rules of engagement, the vendor-specific events will be REMOVED as soon as generic events are made available (duplicate events are a big problem), with an appropriate update to the thinkpad-acpi sysfs/event ABI versioning. Userspace is already prepared to provide easy backwards compatibility for such changes when convenient to the distro (see acpi-fakekey). * Event 0x4010: docking to hotplug dock/port replicator * Event 0x4011: undocking from hotplug dock/port replicator Typical usecase would be to trigger display reconfiguration. Reports mention T410, T510, and series 3 docks/port replicators.
