There doesn't seem to be any way to override Shift-Tab (or BackTab) in
infokey, but fortunately it is bound to "move-to-prev-xref" by
default. This should work unless you have put "#stop" in the section
in infokey.

On my Linux, I temporarily removed ~/.infokey and tried "info --vi-keys" but still Shift-TAB did not work (the same error "Unknown command (BackTab)". I pressed h and found "move-to-prev-xref" was bound to "ESC TAB" and "M-TAB". "ESC TAB" did work for me.
