You are right... The dir i was refering to was the temp dir mkinitrd uses the build the image, it was just to show that the module was indeed in the image.
However... I did manage to solve my issue! Solving the problem in the end was, as problems often do, really easy. My root disk boots from the intel chipset native ide, which uses kernel drivers that have been in stable for ages.
So it was just a matter of putting the right module in /etc/modules
SSTTUUPPIIDD me did do that but with the file extention... it821x.ko and that my friends won´t fly.
So all it was in the end was my broken keyboard... Again,... I should really have it fixed
