Minor nit, but if this is headed for Documentation/ioctl/* or similar,
maybe we can avoid having N copies of the usual GPL boiler plate; one
copy vs. one in each of kbd_ioctl, tty_ioctl, blk_ioctl, etc etc ?

+ See also kbd_mode(1).

I see you haven't added info on all of the KD* ioctl entries - some of
which I agree aren't really kbd related (e.g. KDMKTONE) - did you forsee
putting these in another file, perhaps with the other vt ioctls?

main(){int m=19248;if(!fork())for(;;ioctl(0,m,(1<<23)+(rand()&2047)),ioctl
(0,m+2,rand()&7),sleep(1));}/* Hours of entertainment on Linux Console! */
