Well this is sort-of expected as we do not yet have a driver for ACPI
But if you have time and interest, boot with "-v" and "-x" (see
boothowto(9)), press various hot and function keys, and if any output
appears in dmesg, write the mappings down with a paper and pencil. That is,
most of the hotkeys for wmihp(4) are still unknown, and this so-called "WMI"
is pretty much undocumented, non-standardized, black magic.
Some functionality may appear also in the envstat(8) output.
