I tried xkb, but it doesn't seem to work. 

KBD='-d xkb --keymap=de' 

doesn't have any effect, and 

# console -d vga -d xkb /dev/vcs

just says 

"console: loading driver `xkb' failed: Invalid argument. "

# console -d vga -D /usr/lib/libxkbfile.so.1 /dev/vcs

starts, but isn't usable (text isn't visible, only a line at the bottom of the 
screen showing my position - google sadly didn't turn up a solution either). 

I assume giving it the libxkbfile.so.1 was a completely fooliwsh approach, but 
I wanted to test, it it takes parameters at all. 

This is the K16 qemu image.
