Still, kernel sources and evtest /dev/input/by-path/platform-whitney-button-event confirms that KT's Home button has keycode of ordinary keyboard Home button.
Just a note: there are files /usr/java/lib/keys and /usr/java/lib/keys_alt which are looked like whitelist of keys that can be passed from X server to Java app and also a mapping of X keycode to Java keycode. And there is no entry for Home button in these files.
