The order was kbd, kernel, klibc-kbd (it should be here, but wasn't!),
New kbd doesn't have keymap hook, so during kernel install mkinitcpio will fail.
When kernel depends on the new mkinitcpio, the order will be:
kbd, klibc-kbd, mkinitcpio, kernel
which effectively solves the issue.

Ok, I will repost pacman.log there by myself.
