Yay.  Send me dmidecode (XXX-out UUID and serial numbers) and output of of
acpidump, please.  And check that you have the latest version of the
firmware installed.

Well, it didn't complain about hotkeys, so it probably got all those that it
requested, which includes Fn+F4.  When in doubt, please either run the
driver in debug mode, or check the hotkey_mask in sysfs.

Please check with xev and something like input-events or some other
input-device snooper whether you get events when you press Fn+F4.  Maybe
userspace is ignoring it.

It should be something else, since poll mode seems to fix it, but let's get
the easy stuff out of the way first.

Check if something in userspace is listening to these keys.  They go over
the regular keyboard interface.  You don't have volume hotkeys or a mixer,
you just have two regular keys.  You'll be lucky if you still have a real
MUTE gate outside of the control of the HDA mixer...
