Right, acpi_notify_call_chain returns -EINVAL when the underlying
function call returns NOTIFY_BAD.

Not ideal to have two calls to this function only one of which will be
used. Could look like

        bool    check_call_chain = false;

        ...
        case ACPI_VIDEO_NOTIFY_SWITCH:
                acpi_bus_generate_proc_event(device, event, 0);
                keycode = KEY_SWITCHVIDEOMODE;
                check_call_chain = true
                break;
        ...

        if (acpi_notifier_call_chain(device, event, 0) < 0)
                if (check_call_chain)
                        keycode = 0;

Feel free to just call me for bikeshedding.

I'm not entirely clear on accepted coding style here, but I'd much
rather this look like:

        if (strcmp(event->device_class, ACPI_VIDEO_CLASS) != 0)

I must have read this four times before I figured out that you weren't
early returning on all "video" devices...

Seriously? It's some kind of magic non-switch switch event? And you can
tell by checking magic bits within the event?

How can I test this and know if it works?
