AluBook 5.6: sysctrl mouse button emulation broken with recent git kernel?

... or what did I miss ? .. :)

Hi All

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo 
processor       : 0
cpu             : 7447A, altivec supported

excerpt from "sysctl -A" 

dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 126
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 100
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1

Yet pressing <FN>-<LEFT_ALT> or <FN>-<MULTIKEY> (multikey is the
"Apple" key here) doesn't result in either a 2nd or 3rd mouse key,
neither on console or X on the alubook. The same works like a charm on
an old tibook IV, with the same codes showing up on both machines with
'showkey -s' resp. 'showkey -k'

("showkey -m" does not result in anything here when tapping the
<LEFT_ALT> or <MULTIKEY>, neither on the alubook nor on the ti-IV, so
I could only compare these cryptic (tho' identical) codes from the
output resulting from the showkey options mentioned above)

Values for the alubook:

$ uname -a
Linux debby1-6 2.6.17-rc3-g5528e568-dirty #1 Sun May 7 23:51:15 CEST
2006 ppc GNU/Linux

$ cat /proc/version 
Linux version 2.6.17-rc3-g5528e568-dirty (root@debby1-6) (gcc version
4.1.1 20060428 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.0-2)) #1 Sun May 7 23:51:15
CEST 2006

$ zgrep MAC_EMUMOUSEBTN /proc/config.gz 

The titanium is run by an old, self-rolled ... 

Also the 'sysctl -A' output (please see above) regarding the mouse
stuff is identical on both machines ...

Especially the 3rd button is badly missing on the alubook: I use it
dozens of times daily, with the keyboard emu on the ti-IV ...

Thanks in anticipation
