Ok.

Ok.

Yes, this is the only documented part. Read my email linked to commit
message for more details.

I do not think. Other values in that buffer are not scan codes of other
keys, but additional events. See that table with comments (those
comments which you suggested to change).

It is just documentation purpose, to understand why we are processing
only buffer_entry[2] and why are ignoring anything else after it.

You are right, I will fix it.

Yes, it is not needed anymore. I will delete it.

It is linear scan of whole table and so above two loops has something
like quadratic time complexity. List dell_wmi_keymap_type_0010 is not
too long for now, so it is OK. But still it is better not to call
have_scancode() everytime if it is not needed. Once we have big list of
events we could switch code to use some hash tables...
