Is it working without the patch? Console-setup for instance is known to
have broken the capslock LED, which is precisely one of the reasons for
this patch, which will provide console-setup with a way to bring back
caps lock working properly.

At any rate, please provide way more information about your keyboard
and LED configuration (output of dumpkeys, dmesg, content of
/sys/class/leds/*/trigger, etc.), as things are just working fine for me
(just like it has been for the past two years).

Things work fine with my USB keyboard too, is this perhaps using an odd
driver which would not expose LEDs in a standard way?
