Could you please try to *not* insmod usbkbd module? Or is there any
special particular reason for you doing so?

This module is not what should be used in a normal situation on production
and fully working systems. Everything for USB keyboard to work is normally
handled by the usbhid module. Please see the description of what usbkbd

config USB_KBD
tristate "USB HIDBP Keyboard (simple Boot) support"
depends on USB && INPUT
Say Y here only if you are absolutely sure that you don't want
to use the generic HID driver for your USB keyboard and prefer
to use the keyboard in its limited Boot Protocol mode instead.

This is almost certainly not what you want. This is mostly
useful for embedded applications or simple keyboards.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called usbkbd.

If even remotely unsure, say N.

The module could be buggy, your keyboard might be hidbp incompatible, or
whatever. usbkbd is very rarely used and is there only for really special
ocasions, as the Kconfig help text clearly states.

So could you please try without this module loaded and let me know the
