Base on _BCM and _BQC in your DSDT. The backlight control is handled by EC.
But, in some Acer machines that the _BCM is broken. You can try to modify
brighess by echo to sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

Thanks for your report the behavior for the function 4 and function 8.
Maybe we can use the platform event to do something. e.g. expose key code
to userland. Unfortunately my working list is too long that I do not have
time for it currently.

Thanks a lot!
