If you are rooted you can get xposed framework + xposed addition to remap any key.

xposed additions can remap keys, but i´m not sure if its able to do exactly what u want. might need a pro key.
just have a look at it.
i remapped my volume longress for skipping media for both, screen on and lockscreen using xposed additions.
