I'm stumped too, over what the problem is that remains since you added
ipv6.disable=1 to your cmdline. Are you saying ipv6.disable=1 and keyboard
function are incompatible?

I don't boot Stretch much any more. When I boot Buster with ipv6.disable=1 on
cmdline, the only ipv6 in dmesg is in two kernel cmdline regurgitations.
