finally i just modified the keymap expliciting all the CTRL-key 
combinations which were not present (and make some changes of my gusto 
and added 2 special key for my thinkpad keyboard :) ) so, now i only use 
the new keymap compiled into the kernel but i still don't understand why 
all the CTRL-key combinations work perfectly when the keymap is just set 
with loadkeys and why they don't work when the keymap is compiled into 
the kernel (asked to the keymap author, no clear answer)
