Upstream acknowledges this bug in and

  "[..] I guess I should write my own keyboard driver for EFI and replace the
  standard buggy driver."

There's a SoC contributor in the process of writing an AT keyboard driver

Is it possible that this code can be reused for EFI?  Or does EFI block access
to keyboard controller completely?
