    Interesting. Could you by any chance try to run the 'evtest' program (i
    can send it to you if you don't have it handy) on the /dev/input/event
    device created for this keyboard? And/or dmesg with DEBUG enabled in
    hid-core.c? Also, latest kernels should make even the extra keys of this
    keyboard work ...
