Unfortunately, the only thing in /sys/class/backlight is amdgpu_bl1.
Basically I should have 2 , acpi_video0 & acpi_video1 however none there.

Is fine, no worry. Take your time. Things are working more or less so no rush.

Just one thing. While it is fine to report the Unknow functions/keys by default
once reported upstream the user may want to silence these until implemented.
In my case using the keys for the brightness floods the dmesg with
these messages.

Would be maybe is possible to have some 'do_not_bug_me' module
parameter to silence the
Unknow functions/keys messages?
