Fix handling of HANGUEL/HANJA (10.47 KB, patch)

Description Changwoo Ryu 2006-06-04 11:07:47 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:
Distribution: Debian GNU/Linux unstable
Hardware Environment: i386
Software Environment:
Problem Description:

1. The scancodes are wrong, they are actually 0xF2 for Hanguel key and 0xF1 for
Hanja key respectively.  In drivers/input/keyboard/atkbd.c

 #define ATKBD_RET_ERR          0xff

 #define ATKBD_KEY_UNKNOWN        0

2. There is a special-handling code for these two keys.  But it actually does
not work because the keybit has no bit for KEY_HANGUEL and KEY_HANJA.

in atkbd_interrupt(), 

			atkbd_report_key(atkbd->dev, regs, KEY_HANGUEL, 3);
			goto out;
			atkbd_report_key(atkbd->dev, regs, KEY_HANJA, 3);
			goto out;

this actually does nothing because the only codes which are in the eycode table
are stored in the keybit.  In atkbd_set_device_attrs():

	for (i = 0; i < 512; i++)
		if (atkbd->keycode[i] && atkbd->keycode[i] < ATKBD_SPECIAL)
			set_bit(atkbd->keycode[i], input_dev->keybit);

This bug also causes another problem. The two keys work when I run "showkeycodes
71 123 72 122" but the keycodes does not matter; actually "showkeycodes 71 666
72 777" does the same thing.  The atkbd driver always outputs 122 and 123 by
this special handling.

I propose 
(1) to add set_bit(KEY_HANGUEL, input_dev->keybit) and set_bit(KEY_HANJA,
input_dev->keybit) so it correctly special-handles these keys,  or 
(2) to remove the special handling code and leave it to the user-space.

Steps to reproduce:
(1) press Hanguel/Hanja keys with a korean keyboard.
(2) "setkeycodes 71 123 72 122" and (1) again.

Fix handling of HANGUEL/HANJA

I would appreciate if you could test this patch instead. It adjusts handling of
HANGUEL/HANJA so they can be remapped like other keys.
Comment 3 Changwoo Ryu 2006-06-10 15:02:04 UTC
Good work.  I have tested the patch and it works well.
Comment 4 Dmitry Torokhov 2006-06-11 21:41:09 UTC
Thank you for testing. I will get it in once 2.6.18 opens up.
