Is it Debian-derivative by any chance? Their capslock setup is wonky
because CapsLock key does no actually set up as a CapsLock but another
modifier. Also is it in X or is it on text console? Because X handles
led state on its own...

I do not think you are using usbkbd driver - it is for keyboards in
"boot protocol" and barely anyone users them in such mode. You need to
look into drivers/hid/hid-input.c.

Thanks.
