@bernard you can move forward and backward in the parameter list. See the manual page of bash.

Your dmesg should have extra lines, can you check?

For reference, the AU question is here, I'll close that one in favor of this one. Can you reproduce this problem in a Live USB environment?

comment WMI-based hotkeys on not working
Can you edit dell_wmi_prepare_new_keymap and add the following at the end of the loop body: pr_info("%i %08x %04x\n", keymap[i].type, keymap[i].code, keymap[i].keycode);.

comment WMI-based hotkeys on not working
Yeah, I was already afraid that you only get those messages. Are you able to patch the WMI module as I said? You do not need to rebuild the whole kernel, it is sufficient to build with make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=drivers/platform/x86/ modules and insmod drivers/platform/x86/dell-wmi.ko after patching.

@StephaneChazelas Nice one, I'll update the answer to use !$ instead.

Can you also post a dmesg containing logs from the boot, and when you press hotkeys? Perhaps it gives me some hints that speed up debugging

@Jasper I seldomly use !:1, but it is an option if you have a path with a non-unique prefix.

comment WMI-based hotkeys on not working
acpidump.txt should contain hexdumps that can be extracted with acpixtract. The DSDT and SSDT tables are relevant, but it is easier to check if you can post the acpidump completely (or post the DSDT and SSDT* dat (or dsl) files to gist.github.com such that it can be cloned).

comment WMI-based hotkeys on not working
Martin, could you post the output of sudo acpidump > acpidump.txt on gist.github.com? It shouldn't be a big suprise that WMI hotkeys work in BIOS but not in Linux, there are several variables that control this behavior.

Shouldn't you use the block subsystem? If i am not mistaken, this rule will match the /dev/usb/xxx/yyy device instead of /dev/sdc. ATTRS rather than ATTR should match parent devices (i.e. block).

comment What are considered utilities and applications?
I was referring to this post on AU. On the SE network, it is frowned upon to post the same questions on different sites. Also, this question has some answers now. If something is still not clear, please comment on it.

The key that may help finding an answer is "incremental backup" or "delta backup".
