SubjectBUG? Duplicate key code 0xe045 in dell-wmi.c

I'm looking at dell-wmi.c driver and its history in git and I found
problem with handling WMI key code 0xe045. In current dell-wmi.c code is

{KE_KEY, 0xe045, KEY_PROG1},

I bet this is some copy-paste error as one code can be translated only
to one input key event.

In git history I found that above change was added by commit:

commit 5cab0098171712a9fd51399b06181c8dfdebe9c9

dell-wmi: add additional keyboard events

Upcoming Dell hardware will send more keyboard events via WMI. Add
support for them.

Sending email to all signers of this commit. Problematic code is still
in upstream kernel, so it needs to be fixed.

Mario Limonciello: Do you know if code 0xe045 is some PROG1 or NUMLOCK?
