Well from what I understood from Eugene there is code on Linux that makes the Fn keys work. When ACPI is loaded keys like the brightness of the screen, and switching between LCD screen and external VGA port are blocked.

Would it be possible to get such functionality on eCS ?

Yes. each model of notebook has own key code. Own model of notebook has own algorithm for execute. How I can insert code for ~2000000 notebooks models?

Yes. Other program, CRC for example, which has own dll for each model of notebook (known model). So it is't psd/add problem
