Attached is a patch to the output of xkbcomp on an XO-4 with mechanical 
keyboard. Sorry it's not in style of the files in /usr/share/X11/xkb, I 
still haven't been able to unravel how those files work. I think I can 
make an mi file that just has the changed lines, which layout should I 
use as a base? I'm guessing I might need to do something different for 
the membrane and mechanical keyboards?

What is the best way to modify the laptops? Copying modified output of 
xkbcomp to /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/mi and running

setxkbmap mi

does the trick, but setting the content of /home/olpc/.Xkbmap to mi does 
not make this the default after reboot.
