Do I understand correctly that I add these two keymaps from console-data ?

These files are very old. They are clearly not for modern macbooks.
As far as I remember they are for old macintosh.

The keymap for Apple USB keyboard/trackpad (ISO), Swedish was added
recently. Unfortunately it is only for Swedish.

I do not use these keymaps. I have a MacBookPro8,1 and I'm using the
i386/qwerty/ruwin_cplk-UTF-8.map on it.

nsklaus, keymaps from i386 don't suit you?
