While you are performing this move, is there anything that's actually
preventing you from doing the remapping from userspace as well?

HID subsystem has for long time been providing the setkeycode() hook for
remapping usages, and udev (well, more precisely, that s*****d thing) is
actually shipping a lot of hw-specific remap data these days.
