| 1) Try booting with 'acpi=off'. It's broken for a number of systems
| (does precisely what you've described) and no official update is
| available as of yet. Alternatively, you can try to apply the most
| recent ACPI patch from [1].
|
| 2) Make sure you've enabled core input support and userland keyboard
| interface (CONFIG_INPUT, CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV).

Under "Input device support", you should also enable
CONFIG_SERIO (Serial I/O support).
