Dead keyboards after boot with no keyboard

Hi all,

We have a problem with not being able to plug a keyboard into our
machines if they are booted without keyboards.

We don't have a KVM in our colo, and when our machines are booted, they
don't have keyboards plugged in.

However, when we have a problem with a machine, we need to plug a
keyboard in. This is not recognised at all, and we have to powercycle
the machine, with no way of trying to shut down cleanly.

Is there a fix to this ?
