UDEV - the event which udev sends out after rule processing
KERNEL - the kernel uevent

one thing I found out is that this keyboard has some special anti
ghosting function for some keys. Where you can press multiple keys

and they are all recognized. This is apparently great for gaming. Which
I'm not interested in...
