Copy your kmap (my is hu.kmap.gz) to a file, say .my_console_keymap:

cp /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/hu.kmap.gz ~/.my_console_keymap

edit this file:

mcedit ~/.my_console_keymap

keycode 58 = Control
control keycode 58 = Control

Caps Lock came the Control key.

keycode 29 = Last_Console

The Left Control came the Last Console.

Last Console switch to the last visited console.

At console Login this load my console keymap:

mcedit ~/.bash_profile

sudo loadkeys ~/.my_console_keymap

I hope this helps!
