Changes (by Quozl):

 * next_action:  design => code


  * adjust /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/96-olpckeymap.rules to run the new hwdb
 builtin, passing the keyboard model as search string:
 ENV{DEVTREE_COMPAT}=="olpc,xo-*", \
  IMPORT{builtin}="hwdb 'keyboard:name:$env{XKBMODEL}'", \
  RUN{builtin}+="keyboard", GOTO="olpc_keyboard_end"
  * add a file /lib/udev/hwdb.d/96-olpc-keyboard.hwdb with the OLPC section
 copied from /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb but with the header line
 changed to:
  * regenerate the hwdb.bin
 udevadm hwdb --update
  * reboot (or udevadm trigger /sys/devices/d4290000.ap-

 with these changes, the rotate, rocker keys, game keys, fn key, brightness
 keys, volume keys, and the grab scroll key all work as they did in fedora

 design change is to adjust olpc-utils package to do the above.
