BTW the hangul keyboard I tested is a PS/2 keyboard. the same problem may
happens with a USB keyboard.

Upstream rejects the patch. Please see this:

 I will not accept this patch (or any similar patch) to extend the atkbd.c mapping
 table - only standard scancodes are allowed there. The table is easily modified
 from userspace, and that is the way to go.

 In the past I tried to fill the table with all the entries, but found out that
 there are two or three keyboards competing for every position in the scancode
 table, with a different keycode.

Dmitry changed his mind, here's the new upstream bug:

We're going to get this for free now, from the upstream. Not sure about
specific version though, I'll keep this in mind in case I see the changeset.

Thank you for keeping this on track. it sounds great. I'll look forward to apply
it in our kernel too.
