SubjectSupporting SYSRQ on broken laptops like the thinkpad T530
In its infinite wisdom, lenovo has removed the sysrq key on the latest
thinkpads, and replaced it with a stupid ALT+FN+S key combination, which
doesn't really work for doing sysrq from the console (nor do I know how the
genius who did that intended for SYSRQ-S to work).

I realize that one solution is to throw my laptop window at a suitable high
floorand replace it with one from a vendor that doesn't randomly remove keys
from the keyboard.
That said, I was wondering if there were other solutions, especially
considering that thinkpads used to be the better linux laptops.
