Gah, I was afraid of that. This was so far copy-pasted from old keyboard 
driver. Well at least some keys work...:)
Could you get X server up and then run xev(1) from console and see if the keys 
that are not working produce any events. The ones we're looking for are 
KeyPress and KeyRelease and from those, keycode and keysym are interesting. 
Unfortunately syscons doesn't work on my Ultra5 so I can't check myself. If 
keycodes do come we'll have to make them translate to proper keysyms. If 
there are no events sent at all, you could also try this without any patches 
and see if those break getting keycodes (in which case I've botched 
copy-paste in the first place)...
