There are some nasty endian bugs in the keyboard ioctls which
amongst others most likely also prevent keymap loading from
working. But even if it worked the keymaps found in
/usr/share/syscons/keymaps/ would be of no use as they are
for AT and PS/2 compatible keyboards. Sun RS232 keyboards
require different ones.
