This is not neccessary as the same can be achived with "kbdmap" or
"kbdcontrol" at run-time.

No, there is a fine difference: The possible maximum size of a keymap in the kernel is the size of the ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP (the keymap is converted into a header file during kernel compilation). If no keymap is specified the 108 key us.iso.kbd is taken. So in order to get more than 108 keys (which seemed to be your problem first) you have to extend a keymap and compile that into the kernel.

I now solved the problem. It was scancode 90 and not 109 (as in X11).

Glad to hear.
