SubjectDell Latitude CPi keyboard problems since 2.5.42
Vojtech,

This problem is still present in 2.5.58. Any ideas what might
be causing it? I've tried a few obvious tweaks (forcing
atkbd_reset=1, making atkbd_cleanup() do nothing), but none
has helped.

Kernel 2.5.41 and older, and current 2.4/2.2 kernels, don't
cause this problem, so obviously the input driver must be doing
_something_ the HW or BIOS doesn't like.

I have CONFIG_{SERIO_I8042,KEYBOARD_ATKBD,INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX,
MOUSE_PS2,INPUT_PCSKR} enabled.
