Description of problem:
Hangul key and Hanja key in Hangul keyboard isn't recognized with showkey.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.press hangul key or hanja key
should show keycode
both keys works fine after setkeycodes 71 122 72 123. this is important to
support hangul keyboard for korean users.
BTW the hangul keyboard I tested is a PS/2 keyboard. the same problem may
happens with a USB keyboard.
Created attachment 129902 [details]
proposed patch to use Hangul/Hanja key
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.
