Key relese event on multimedia keyboard (scroll wheel)

I have a problem with my multimedia keyboard. Generally i made it work well in Linux, but there is one problem, that i can't cope with - scroll wheel. When i move it up it send e00b key press scancode (i assigned it to 103 keycode(up arrow) using setkeycodes) ,but when i move it down, it send e00b (the same ) key RELEASE scancode. So how could i enable scrolling in both direction? Is it possible to map key release scancode to some keycode (other than assigned to key press)?
Any other ideas?

PS setting atkb.scroll=1 did not work
