OK, I no longer have compiled 2.5 kernels installed, only 2.6.0-test1/2.
I can only say it does work normally under 2.4.x.

On the laptop with Japanese keyboard the Yen/Pipe key is totally dead.
On the regular PC with USB keyboard only the backslash works.

How can I check keycodes while in textmode?

Very annoying, I can't type dmesg | grep keyboard while in textmode..:-(
But from X:

input: AT Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0

Above shows Set 2 for the laptop. I can't tell for the PC.
