    I agree with you that there's a risk. Mike Harris had
    written a
    patch for 2.2 which did something similar, but
    slightly better
    IMO since it avoids risks of mis-press, handles
    broken keyboards and keeps compatible with the
    method. Basically, it allows the user to press Alt,
    then SysRQ,
    release SysRQ then press the desired key, and later
    Alt. In fact, it only resets the "magic-key-mode" flag
    after Alt
    has been released, and doesn't bother when SysRq is

    I don't remember where it was available, but if
    someone needs
    it, I still have it here for 2.2.
