I don't think there is anything hardware-specific in ckbcomp.  Try running

ckbcomp us

I suppose everything will be OK with ckbcomp.

If this is so, then the next suspect is /bin/setupcon.  Try restoring 
ckbcomp and running setupcon by hand (from the text console).  Does it 
work?  If no, then this is good as it will be easier to debug.  Please 

sh -x /bin/setupcon >/tmp/setupcon.debug

and send the file setupcon.debug.

Otherwise (that is if setupcon works), there must be something early 
during the boot process causing the problem.  In this case you can 
replace the line

        if setupcon -k 2>/dev/null; then

in the script /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup with

        if setupcon -k 2>/tmp/setupcon.debug; then

Then send us the content of the file setupcon.debug.

P.S. In case this laptop is a multiuser system, don't forget to restore the 
original content of /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup because ouputting to a 
fixed file name in a world-writtable directory is a security risk.
