I've also just noticed that this keyboard model defines its own Group
name. So it's possible that your CoreKeyboard option is set correctly
but gkrellm still is not able to determine what country flag to use.

partial alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "inspiron" {
    name[Group1]= "Laptop/notebook Dell Inspiron 8xxx";

Unfortunately this Group name apparently overrides the Group name of
the "us" layout. I don't know about any work-around.

However, I've found by experimentation that with the following 
configuration the Group names are visible to gkrellm-xkb at least 
in case when the "cz" or "de" layout is active:

 Section "InputDevice"
         Identifier  "Inspiron Keyboard"
         Driver      "keyboard"
         Option      "XkbRules" "xfree86"
         Option      "XkbModel" "inspiron"
         Option      "XkbLayout" "us,de,cz"

Maybe someone with better knowledge of the XKB extension could
provide some help.
