SubjectRe: Dell Latitude CPi keyboard problems since 2.5.42
Possibly related:

Dell Inspiron 8000s won't warm reboot either. They just freeze with a
blinking cursor at the point where the bootloader would ordinarily load.
Have to power off or reset.

Consistent in various versions from 2.5.44 to .55. Have not tested
earlier, nor yet later.
