Does the X120e correctly issue acpi events when you plug/unplug the
power cord?  If it does, it is probably best to just either ignore these
events, or use setkeycodes to map these events to something that won't
bother you.

thinkpad-acpi currently does not interact with the KBC (keyboard
controller), so it cannot filter out these events.

So, it is reporting through the KBC _and_ a private HKEY event, on top
of (probably) reporting it as a ACPI notification on the AC adapter

FWIW, you can ignore any thinkpad-acpi messages about 0x6040 events.
