any relevant msgs in dmesg output ?
As you're not averse to building your own kernels, you could try
flipping the debug switch on in drivers/input/serio/i8042.c
(line 42, just s/undef/define/)
That should produce a slew of output as it detects the keyboard/mouse
and when you hit/release a key.  If it actually does spew output,
then this could be one of the corner cases the new input core doesn't
handle yet (keyboard handling was completely rewritten, and some
keyboards don't quite follow the specs it seems), in which case, the
maintainer of this code ([email protected]) would probably like to hear
about it.
