loss of the keyboard.

atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> at port 0x60,0x64 on isa0
atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0
kbd0 at atkbd0

it in/out of the PS/2 port doesn't reset, at least not within DF. Resetting
the box and going through boot again re-enables my keyboard.

this problem, also with atkbd (from what Sascha remembered). Chris suspects
M_WAIT* malloc() changes in atkbd.c.
