You are 100% correct. The 2.6 kernel do have a driver for my case.

yes I do have set up 2.6 system running (so far, most things works, only small features failed and I am still fixing them, not have to because of 2.6 kernel but probably my misconfiguration of 2.6 kernel) When keys gets messed up, I removed keymap from boot run-level, and both keyboards begin to work fine. I don't know if this has a lot of difference then re-configuring keymap in /etc/conf.d/keymap
