OSX 10.11 El Capitan and Kinesis Freestyle 2 Bluetooth little glitch

After upgrading to El Capitan, my Kinesis Freestyle 2 Bluetooth keyboard had a small issue, which I'm documenting here in case other people hit it.

Basically, after installing the OS update, F*/special keys were dead. Solution:
  1.  Open System Preferences -> Bluetooth
  2. Click on the X icon to the right of the keyboard, in order to un-pair it.
  3. turn the Kinesis off, then on again, and press the CONNECT button at the back of the keyboard
  4. The keyboard should pop on the screen, select it and pair it again (you will have to type a few numbers shown on screen)
All done! You should now have your special keys back.
