Bug#819288: console-setup-linux: keyboard-setup.sh init script (actually, the cached scripts) rely on /tmp, which may not be mounted at early boot

Hm, this is totaly unexpected.  Normally the cached scripts rely on 
compiled keyboard maps in /etc.

The only reason I can see the cached scripts rely on maps in /tmp is 
that /etc/ was read-only when `setupcon --save-only` was executed by 
/etc/init.d/console-setup.sh or `dpkg-reconfigure`.

The cached scripts should never rely on files in /tmp and this is a bug 
I will have to fix somehow.  However, an important question we have to 
investigate here is this: why in your system the cached scripts rely on 
files in /tmp.
