Subjectatkbd works as module but not linked in, 2.5.5-dj3

This is a strange problem. I have CONFIG_KEYBOARD_AT set, and my
file has the correct entries to show that the atkbd.c file was linked into my
kernel. Yet my AT keyboard is not detected. 'dmesg' shows:

hdc: hdc1 hdc2 < hdc5 hdc6 hdc7 >
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
NET4: Linux TCP/IP 1.0 for NET4.0

Now here's the strange part -- if I manually compile atkbd.c as a module and
'insmod' it, this appears:

input: AT Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0

And then the keyboard works. Am I doing something wrong? Everything worked
fine with 2.5.5-dj1, I have not tested 2.5.5-dj2 but would be glad to do so
if anyone thought it might help.

System is a dual p3-750, 440BX chipset. I'm going to keep looking into it,
checking the code that should initialize the keyboard and also looking at the
diffs closely.
