Keyboard oddity. "atkbd.c: Unknown key"

Hey, just took a look at my system log and found some peculiar messages...

Jan 10 17:02:48 FRoZiX kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x11d, data 0x11, on isa0060/serio0).
Jan 10 17:02:48 FRoZiX kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x11d, data 0x91, on isa0060/serio0).
I managed to discover which key is causing this, luckily it's not a necessary key, but one I'd like to put to use within xbindkeys. Unfortunately, cause of this error, this isn't possible. At least until the issue is resolved.

I'm thinking I'll have to edit the atkbd.c code. Does anyone know where this file is located?

lol, well, changing my keyboard is out of the question. The keyboard works just fine, and as I said it isn't even an 'ordinary' key. It's one of the extra-special-super-keyboard-functionality keys. Most of the others seem to work (there's another one that seems to have the same problem).

I'll see about incorporating it right into the kernel.
