I made a patch to add support for Switch 12's keyboard and tested it on Fedora 22's current 4.0.8 kernel. The patch works.
I need directions to enable hardware sleep and volume buttons on Switch 12.
Nicholas, since you already created a patch please add you "signed-off-by" to it (see Documentation/SubmittingPatches) and post it to firstname.lastname@example.org (CC email@example.com). That would be the fastest way for the patch to get applied.
