There's a special ADB command to send to the keyboard to reverse them.

I beleive one day, I'll have to write a /proc entry for setting that
along with the trackpad tapping features ;)

In the meantime, I beleive the proper ADB sequence is somewhere in
the list archives, I can eventually try to figure it out again next
week if there is great interest.
