I am also having this issue. It started happening for me when I was
using ArchLinux during July of 2016; I was thinking about going back to
Ubuntu, so I re-installed Lubuntu over Arch. Low and Behold, the issue
My issue is worse in that usually the key(s) that will trigger this repeated
key is the arrow keys, which I frequently use to scroll up and down through man
pages, web pages, etc. However, when this occurs, my keyboard no longer
responds to input, and my mouse will start "falling" to whichever direction the
arrow key corresponds (down arrow repeat will cause my mouse cursor to
continuously move to the bottom of the screen). I noticed that my dmesg was
being spammed with this error too, and when I (temporarily) set the keycodes to
255, the issue persists, but the error message will go away from dmesg.
If my issue seems right for another new bug thread, please let me know.
I'll provide what everyone else has been providing -- welcome to provide
any information I can in order to address this bug.

Or if anyone knows generally what might be messed up, I'm pretty
experienced using Linux, and I know some C... so I could theoretically
fix it myself (I would post any successes I had here).
