    Hmm, in theory it could be triggering bugs in some buggy keyboard
    controller. But then a

    while true ; do setleds +caps +numlock ; sleep 1 ; setleds -caps -numlock ;
    sleep 1 ; done

    should trigger it too.

    Anyways; it is normally only intended for special
    case kdump or other debugging kernels which tend to not get
    much interaction; you shouldn't really set it anywhere else.

    I've been also considering to make it always dependent on
    a command line option, but that is not done yet.
