Hardware keyboard top row keycodes problem
#1
I've a little problem with the values returned by _some_ keys from the top row, only when used with the 'Fn' key.

For example Fn-1 does not return the pipe character '|' but '\';  '~' returns 'back tick' and '+' returns '='.

A firmware problem or  kernel's driver one ?

That's because there's no |, ~ or + keys on the regular keyboard, so scancodes sent by the pine keyboard correspond to \,` and = respectively. Theoretically keyboard should report keycode along with scancode to hint the driver about such cases, so this problem should be resolved at some point.
Until then you may use fn+shift+key on these combinations.
