I'm a bit confused by all the layering of keyboard interpretation.
As I see it:
keyboard ------> kbd/bios/firmware -------> kernel ----------> procs
?code? scan code ascii/signals
Things get more muddy (to me, anyway) when X is involved.
Drivers are also involved here somewhere, but I don't know if it does the
mapping to or from scan codes.
Can anyone illuminate it for me?
