thanks,  but this is a dead end. That quirk presumes that your 
multimedia keys produce some events in either xev or dmesg or at least 
"sometimes work using extra software like tpd and lineakd". Well, I 
repeat my keys produce no output neither xev nor dmesg. Lineakd again 
relies on xev output so the circle closes, and I was not able to find 
that tpd software but I assume this is something for Lenovo Thinkpad 
laptops so not applicable for my Microsoft keyboard.

This keyboard used to work just perfectly in F8 with kbd driver and I 
still believe it is possible to make it work with evdev.

I'm running F9 x86_64 and F10 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
