    You didn't CC me in on this reply - although I am subscribed to LKML,
    like most subscribers, I don't read every single message on the list,
    and could easily have missed your reply - please CC relevant people,
    unless they ask you not to. This may be why you didn't get replies
    before :-).

    The people I suggest you contact are:

    Alan Cox - he will know why disabling the APIC fixed the keyboard
    Vojtech Pavlik - he knows all about the input layer code
