    CONFIG_BLINK=y

    OOps. WTF is that?

    config BLINK
    tristate "Keyboard blink driver"
    help
    Driver that when loaded will blink the keyboard LEDs
    continuously.
    This is useful for debugging and for kernels that cannot
    necessarily
    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?
