HID: apple: option to swap the 'Option' ("Alt") and 'Command' ("Flag") keys.
commit 43c831468b3d26dbe8f2e061ccaf1abaf9cc1b8b upstream. Use case: people who use both Apple and PC keyboards regularly, and desire to keep&use their PC muscle memory. A particular use case: an Apple compact external keyboard connected to a PC laptop. (This use case can't be covered well by X.org key remappings etc.) Signed-off-by: Nanno Langstraat <langstr@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
