Ops, I didn't saw that keycodes/macintosh is also changed.. :-)
But this also means that the current console-setup is incompatible
with the new xkeyboard-config. There seams to be no relation between
the X keycodes and the keycodes of the kernel. Because of that
ckbcomp has to use hardwired translation tables and to guess the
architecture from the keyboard model. Up to now keycodes/macintosh
implied the old macintosh keycodes but now this depends on the model..
I will be ready with the upload today or within the next few days.
