In case anybody is interested, I figured out how to get bluetooth keyboards to
work with the N900. I.e. how to get the pc105 xkb layout. First, copy the
/usr/share/X11/xkb/ directory from chinook to the N900. (I put it in
/usr/share/X11/xkb-chinook/. Be careful not to overwrite /usr/share/X11/xkb/.)
Then do:

% setxkbmap -device 4 -I -I/usr/share/X11/xkb-chinook -rules base -model pc105 -layout us

It may take a little while for it to take effect. And you may need to coax it
a bit by typing a bit on the internal keyboard after doing the setxkbmap. You
need to redo the setxkbmap after each reboot.

So far I only tried this with the iGo Stowaway.
