evdev: Support AT 102/105 keys keyboard 0x56 scancode

Authored by dumbbell on Oct 31 2017, 11:58 PM.



This is the extra key just right of the Left Shift key. With a French layout, this key is used to type < and >.

Test Plan

I tested this with libinput-debug-events(1). Without the patch, the key doesn't produce any event (evdev_scancode2key() returns 0 for a scancode of 0x56). With the patch, the scancode is converted to 0x56 (KEY_102ND) and an event is fired. The key is now usable in a evdev/libinput-enabled X.Org server.

FWIW, the problem doesn't occur with a USB keyboard of the same type.
