I can't use a kbd driver, as it is a multiseat workstation.
And the evdev driver is the only one which lets you select a given keyboard.
Accidentally, I made an interesting "discovery".
mv /usr/lib64/kde4/kded_khotkeys.so /usr/lib64/kde4/kded_khotkeys.so.orig
And now the "up" key works after each restart or cold boot.
Could be an accident, but reverting the change makes the "up" key not working again.
