    try to put a line like
    modprobe the_mosule_to_load
    in i.e. rc.local or similar file

    that's the problem

    If it was just a module...

    The keyboard driver seems to be initialized very early in the boot-process

    so I assume I have to recompile the kernel, but I'm not sure what to edit. And for all I know there's a much easier way

    then simply don't compile it as a module but built it in...
    as to the name - i'm not sure but if you'll go through options corresponding to devices
    you'll intuitively know what to choose
    and what's wrong with rc.local i think it works i load nvidia drivers in such a way
