 Set hint.atkbd.0.flags="0x1" in the loader and your keyboard
 will probably work.  You will also need to add this to your
 /boot/device.hints once you're installed if you want the machine to work
 in single user mode.  We will be setting this flag on the release CD,
 but it is currently only set on the floppies due to a somewhat obscure
 logic error in the release makefile.
 
 Longer term I'm working on a keyboard mux to solve this problem once and
 for all.
