I've noticed a small problem in the lastest kernels (2.1.34 and 2.1.35)
which did not exist in 2.1.33 or earlier:
I've got my F12 key aliased to output the string "exit\n" in my keymap.
With those two kernels, I get the standard "~4" instead. I didn't change
any util. Using kbd-0.92 (the latest I believe). Executing loadkeys by
hand doesn't yield any error, but doesn't change anything either.
The strange thing is nothing at all changed in keyboard.c.
Kernel is compiled with SMP commented out, in case this changes anything.
No patch applied except parport (I tried without, same thing).
