Fix Lenovo T440s brightness keys

Per default the brightness keys does not work and we couldn't even read out the keycodes using xev.

We found the fix on launchpad:

  1. Edit /etc/default/grub
  2. Change the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=\"!Windows 2012\""
  3. sudo update-grub
  4. Reboot
