The primary Private Use Area is U+E000 .. U+F8FF today.
However, Unicode 1.0 defined a Private Use Area U+E800 .. U+FDFF.

The Linux keyboard driver uses the Private Use Area as it was
at the time of Unicode 1.0 for internal purposes, and assumes
that unicode characters have different values.
Since Unicode changed its mind, this is no longer true.
