I copy my comments from forum also here:

It looks to me as if the second button gets defined with a reference KEY_WLAN that has no corresponding mapping in gpio-button-hotplug. The button actions thus probably get left unhandled by the hotplug mechanism.

wr1043nd v2 buttons:
gpio-button-hotplug mappings:

The first button is defined as KEY_RESTART and mapped to "reset". That is ok.
The other button is defined as KEY_WLAN, but I fail to find a mapping for it. 1043ndv2 device is the only place in Openwrt trunk sources where KEY_WLAN is mentioned (except a few brcm63xx patches).

Support for the device has been implemented by r38955 about 4 months ago, so there aren't probably that many users, yet.

As the mapping is not found, index value returned is negative, and the actions gets dropped here:

Of the same ar71xx platform, wr1043nd v1 defines buttons as KEY_RESTART and KEY_WPS_BUTTON, which both are mapped ok. My own wndr3700 has KEY_RESTART, KEY_WPS_BUTTON and BTN_2, which all are mapped ok.

See also #15354.

The root cause of the problem might be related to a recent change to the gpio_button_hotplug.c file in the package/kernel/gpio-button-hotplug/src directory. Specifically there was a #ifdef CONFIG_HOTPLUG added to the file along with an #else clause that defines a button_hotplug_event method that does nothing on GPIO button events. I believe what happened is the Makefile didn't pass along a CONFIG_HOTPLUG define to the src file during the compile step. The solution should be to either modify the Makefile to include the CONFIG_HOTPLUG definition or remove the #ifdef that was added to the file.

Looks like this was solved in issue #16413.
