Yes, after some more testing today I figured that the last version I 
compiled was 6.8.2_2 instead of 6.8.2. Somehow all my previous ports 
cvsup downloaded the 6.8.2 and the last one I did (where I removed the 
patch after everything else (see this mailinglist archives) failed) 
downloaded the 6.8.2_2 version. And the reason the keyboard works is 
because of the deprecated driver being used.
