 On our Proliant 1600R the kernel does not boot even with the
 mouse disconnected.  FreeBSD 4.11 works fine on this system.
 Here is a snippit of the kernel output on boot, this is
 with verbose logging selected, FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE:
 aic0: not probed (disabled)
 atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> at port 0x60,0x64 on isa0
 atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> irq 1 on atkbdc0
 atkbd: the current kbd controller command byte 0065
 atkbd: keyboard ID 0x41ab (2)
 kbdc: RESET_KBD return code:00fa
 kbdc: RESET_KBD status:00aa

 kbd0: atkbd0, AT 101/102 (2), config:0x0, flags:0x3d0000
 atkbd0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
 psm0: current command byte:0065
 kbdc: TEST_AUX_PORT status:0000
 kbdc: RESET_AUX return code:0000
 at this point it just freezes and the keyboard no
 longer responds to the 3 finger salute.
 Here is a snippit from an earlier boot on this machine with
 verbose NOT enabled (too much logging makes it scroll off the

 Speculation on the questions mailing list is that it is the USB
 controller.  Ths server does NOT have any physical USB ports yet
 FreeBSD detects a USB chip.  Linux has the same problem but with
 Linux you can disable the USB driver during the install, before it
 tries to load it.
 The BIOS does not allow disabling the mouse port on this system,
 it allows disabling the interrupt, but it still freezes.  This
 system is a Compaq Proliant PL1600R 6/500 512 128  (dual 500MHZ
 The BIOS says nothing about USB.
 Here is the DMESG output from a FreeBSD 4.11 system on a Proliant
 1600R with dual 450Mhz CPUs (very similar hardware).  Note the
 failure to access the USB hardware:
