    Hmm. This message seems to be from arch/arm26/lib/kbd.c
    Is this message from 2.6.6? Is this an ARM?

    Your report is a bit messy. You change things for scancode 0x71 and then
    expect the keycode for 0x70 to be changed?

    Given a careful and precise report, no doubt it will be clear
    what your situation is. Mention architecture, scancodes under 2.4,
    scancodes under 2.6.


    [The situation with arch/arm26/lib/kbd.c is funny.
    That is the old keyboard code that was removed from
    the general kernel code. No doubt it should be updated.]
