The answer is that the new laptop uses usb3 with xhci_hcd/pci.
The resolution was to put those modules including usbhid and hid_generic
in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and update the initramfs.
Now after boot I have the multimedia keys and I do not need to unplug and
plug again the keyboard to get them working.
