Thanks for the quick reply, unfortunately it did not work, the problem persists. If I hold down either one of the buttons or press one of them repeatedly and quickly, the VoodooPS2 kext appears to crash.

Read post #1, "Problem Reporting".

Do I have to extract using patchmatic, even though I am already doing it with Clover F4? Or is this to get my current patched DSDT?

The patchmatic extract in "Problem Reporting" is for my diagnostic purposes.

If you're reporting a problem, you must provide all files and output exactly as requested in post #1, "Problem Reporting".

Would you like me to create a seperate thread and post the link here, or just upload the files here? Also, the patchmatic extract may be affected, because I have DropOem set to true.

Here. Do not worry about my abilities to interpret the data you provide... just provide the data as requested.

The problem is still here, but is a little better, if I hold down one of the brightness keys, it will keep going. But if I press them fast, the problem appears.

No idea. May be BIOS problem (I wonder if same on Windows). You may have to debug further to find the cause ...

I didn't do any debugging, but I set a Custom PS2 Map entry, which is e02b=0. It seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks for the guide.
