Thanks for pointing out! This should point to github issues now, I'll
adjust this with my next keymap PR (presumably one to fix your key).

Kay, is this supposed to work (and udevadm fixed for that)? If not,
this certainly does work:

  udevadm trigger --sysname-match=event*

This looks similar to this already existing rule for this model:
# HDX9494nr
 KEYBOARD_KEY_b2=www                                    # Fn+F3
 KEYBOARD_KEY_d8=!f23                                   # touchpad off
 KEYBOARD_KEY_d9=!f22                                   # touchpad on

Do you have touchpad on/off keys? Do they already work?

As for the new entry being ignored, is that still the case after "udevadm
control --reload", or just rebooting? (I've heard that this sometimes is
necessary). If so, can you please pastebin "udevadm info --export-db"
somewhere, so that we can verify the DMI names and whether the hwdb
entry actually matches?

Finally, which systemd version are you running? (The 60-keyboard.hwdb
syntax changed in 220).
