Thanks a lot for information.

I am so waiting your patch for kbd (the cvs question was in fact to try to
understand changes that make ps2 kbd un-operational and by the way why
unplug re-plug of b180 kbd was requested).

Always happy to try to help free and open software community.

Nice to know that. But, I think I will deliver a big patch for the
keyboard story. Then, I will need some testers. Thanks to be one of them

said that it is broken for 2.4.0.
I can grab old versions with cvs co -r 1.83 linux, for example.
To know the release you want, use this:

Thanks again for reporting, Thomas.

PS: I also hope an explanation of modules on hppa. I will have to write
all the cleanup stuff for the mouse.
