In your ASL code is:
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) // _STA: Status
If ((OIDE () < One))
OIDE() returns 1 for Windows 8.
This is quite interesting, on my Latitude E6440 is this ASL code:
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized)
If (LLess (OIDE (), One))
And again OIDE() returns 1 for Windows 8. So behaviour is negated.
Can you check if you have latest version of BIOS? Maybe Dell written
that condition incorrectly?
Can you try to add "DELLRBC6" into dell-rbtn.c acpi table and boot
kernel with acpi_osi="!Windows 2012" acpi_osi="!Windows 2013" what

Can you please provide debug output from dell-wmi module when you press
those hotkeys? Specially I want to see wmi buffer for each pressed
hotkey. In debug dmesg it starts with "Received WMI event" and "Process
buffer". Look into dell-wmi.c source code.
