My Debian image is largely functional, I'd just like to take care of shoring up some final little details on it.
First, how does the Smartbook handle back light adjustments? The normal screen dim command that works across most all x86 device doesn't seem to work on the Genesi (not uncommon on ARM devices). Is there a certain way I can adjust the back light?
What "command" are you trying to use?
The kernel has keyboard input handlers for the screen brightness keys. They go through and the screen dims or brightens automatically. If you are NOT using the kernel from http://github.com/genesi/linux-legacy
then you will have to add a patch;

If you want to do any other way, the real only other way is using the sysfs entry which is IIRC under /sys/class/backlight where it is on x86 too.
Volume mute has been tested to work fine. To get suspend to support properly you don't need anything but you may want to disable "hibernate" support which is implemented as a PolicyKit rule;

Since I know you're not using our kernel (where the keys work fine), I would ask what kernel you are using..
