I just looked into it. You will NOT be forced by my patches to compile 
keyboard.c. You may stay with your usual configuration (no keyboard, no STI, 
only serial-console). In my last commit I changed defconfig to use virtual 
consoles, keyboard and hil-keyboard. This should not affect your usage of the 
So I think my changes should cleanly attach to any tree, and if you only use 
serial-console without keyboard enabled, you're right, that you will need the 
patch to setup.c. Couldn't you commit your patch to setup.c (with  #ifdef ... 
#endif) ?
