Key scancodes swapped with swedish keyboard layout

Hello, im no keyboard expert but i want to share my findings
When i Linux as guest OS (Ubuntu 9.10) with a standard swedish USB keyboard (Dell keyboard) two keys are swapped. The keys are also swapped with the builtin swedish macbook keyboard.
Here is the standard swedish keyboard layout: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e0/KB_Sweden.svg
The swapped keys are "§½" and "<>|", the "§½" key generates scancode 0x2c and "<>|" generates 0x56
The attached patch fixes this but im quite sure that it will mess things up for other layouts, but what is the correct way to fix this?
