The following setting in /etc/default/keyboard has the same result:
provided that defkeymap.kmap.gz is copied from /usr/share/keymaps/... to
/etc/console-setup. But there is no debconf-question to support this
setting and I don't think there will be one.

My preferred solution is to remove the "leave kernel keymap" option.

I can't think of a situation when loading defkeymap.kmap.gz is different
to leaving the kernel keymap.
