If you *know* it is compiled into your kernel, and you *know* it
is enabled via the above, and it still does not work, do the
following:

Run:

showkey -s

Then press LALT quickly followed by SYSRQ, and keep holding both
down, and you should see:

0x38
0x54

You might see a bunch of extra 0x38's which is ok.

If however when you press ALT-SYSRQ you see:

0x38 0x54 0xd4

and are still holding both keys down, then your keyboard is
broken and incompatible with the kernel SYSRQ feature.

A proper keyboard will only show "0x38 0x54". I have written a
patch for SYSRQ to allow it to be used with broken keyboards that
send the make+break code for the SYSRQ sequence simultaneously.

If you need it, let me know and I'll send it to you.
