Asus 1201HA Fn Keys with F17

I have recently installed F17 on may Asus Eeepc 1201HA it has all (so far) worked right out of the box, but i am having some minor issues with the Fn Hotkeys.

Right Out of the box:
Sound controls, wireless & touchpad (onf/off) works perfectly.

Brightness control does not work, neither hotkeys nor through "brightnes" at system settingss.

adding acpi_osi=Linux at the grub config
as recommended on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Eee_PC

Disables the touchpad toggle.
Enables the screen on/off toggle.
When pressing the brightness Fn hotkeys, it shows on the screen the "brightness meter" but there is no effect on the screen brightness.

making a echo to /sys/class/backlight/psb_bl/brightness does change the screen brightness.

Any hint to make it work?
I've also tried adding acpi_backlight=vendor as suggested on some sites with no luck.

Thanks in advance and pardon my english.
