ABNT (Associao Brasileira de Normas Tecnicas) and ABNT2 are Brazilian
keyboard layout standards. The plain Brazilian keyboard has 103 keys.
The Brazilian ABNT keyboard has two unusual keys, with scancodes 73 (/?)
and 7e (Keypad-.). The former is located to the left of the RShift
(which key therefore is less wide than usually), the latter below the
Keypad-Plus (reducing the Keypad-Plus to single height).
Under Linux, the corresponding key codes are 89 and 121, respectively.

In the 2.4 source, see the array high_keys[]. It will map 73, 7d
(seen on Japanese keyboards), 7e to keycodes 89, 124, 121.

The 2.6.1 kernel will first untranslate to 51, 6a, 6d and then map
to 181, 182, 124, changing the keycode for all three.
