Excerpts from Andres Salomon's message of Sat Dec 11 01:11:01 +0100 2010:

Does this actually work for you right now? It stopped working for me
some time ago (don't know exactly when unfortunately). "udevadm test
/class/input/event3" shows exactly what I expected (including that it
would run "keymap input/event3 olpc-xo" which will make the keyboard
work correctly if run manually), so I'm at a loss.

Thanks for the pointer, that might explain why X forwarding (in ssh) is
sometimes broken for me.

There was a thread about it several weeks or months ago on devel at l.l.o.
It came up in context of the non-membrane keyboard layouts IIRC.
