Re: keyboard loss in DF

:for the past few weeks/months I've been plagued on this machine at work by a
:loss of the keyboard.
:It's a PS/2 one:
:atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> at port 0x60,0x64 on isa0
:atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0
:kbd0 at atkbd0
:Doesn't matter if I use console or X, the keyboard is just dead.  Plugging
: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.
:I know Emiel has suffered the same, not sure if it is also a PS/2 one
:though, and I was just told by Sascha that Chris (Pressey) also experiences
:this problem, also with atkbd (from what Sascha remembered).  Chris suspects
:M_WAIT* malloc() changes in atkbd.c.
:The occurency is, for me, non-repeatable.  Right now I have been typing for
:over 10 minutes whereas before I locked up right after my reboot to clear
:the problem.

:Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it...

    Is this occuring in the middle of typing something or is it dead on
    boot ?

    I've lost my USB keyboard once in the last month in the middle of
    typing something.
