    Hi Elimar,

    sorry, but I don't seem to understand your problem. There are two
    situations - either you have hid bultin in kernel, or compiled as a
    module. In the first case, you simply modify the kernel boot commandline
    to contain a string


    and that's it. In the latter case, you add something like

    options hid pb_fnmode=2

    into the /etc/modprobe.conf file (or you can use any distro-specific way
    to pass parameters to modules, such as /etc/modprobe.d). This is standard
    way to do things, and it works also with hid.

    I don't think there is a need to have this as a separate kernel
    configuration option.
