That's exactly what I've tried. Below is the original content of this

  # This sed script is run across the dumpkeys output to remap keys on the console
  # This turns caps lock into control
  #s/keycode 58 = Caps_Lock/keycode 58 = Control/;

I think it's a sed command. See

  $ echo -e "abc\ndec" | sed 's/c/C/'

Would you mind sharing your own /etc/kbd/remap configuration?
