fyi to keep people from reading the whole thread, the patch bryan is talking 
about should be this:

From: Andrew Lankford <andrew.lankford@xxxxxxxxxxx>
Subject: Re: amd64/67745: boot fails on compaq presario r3000z

 Instead of totally disabling test_kbd_port and test_aux_port
 completely with Jung-uk Kim's patch, Scott Long suggested
 that I try removing one or two calls to test_kbd_port at a
 time from atkbd.c.  My first guess at the problem was the 
 first time test_kbd_port was called in probe_keyboard():

   err = get_kbd_echo(kbdc);
 This patch fixes my booting problems.  Any problems with
 test_aux_port have most likely already been fixed by a
 recent commit.

unless i'm mistaken we don't support dynamic load-time flags, do we? jhb got a 
more streamlined patch for that too in the same thread.
