driver kbd: hardcodes Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. (IMHO that's a bug anyway)
driver evdev: the XKB map decides what happens.
In the latter case, all you have to do is change the xkb map. If you can
convice svu to add it to xkeyboard-config, you only need to supply the right
option and you're done with it.
I'm not quite sure what the poll will achieve here.
