 The X server can't send events if the kernel isn't passing keycodes to it,
or if it doesn't know what events to map the keycodes to.

 Use showkey(1) to find out what the key codes are, then feed something like
keycode 200 = Hyper_L
keycode 220 = XF86LightBulb
 (I just fired up xkeycaps to see what weird stuff you could do with extra
keys, and under Vendor keysyms, XF86LightBulb really exists... :)

 BTW, some/all of this may not work at all, since I just pulled it out of my
ass :)
