CONFIG_BLINK=y

OOps. WTF is that?

config BLINK
tristate "Keyboard blink driver"
help
Driver that when loaded will blink the keyboard LEDs

This is useful for debugging and for kernels that cannot

output something to the screen like kexec kernels to give
the user
a visual indication that the kernel is doing something.


..does it need "default n"? Why does it make keys stuck sometimes?
