SubjectFwd: Patch for initial CapsLock
Dear Alan,

Here's a USB problem which can only be resolved in generic code.
Vojtech is the owner of the code, but did not reply. Do you think
you can keep this patch in -ac?

Thanks in advance,
-- Pete

Subject: Patch for initial CapsLock
User-Agent: Mutt/1.2.5.1i

Hi, Vojtech:

In 2.4.21-pre2, if Caps Lock is on and a USB keyboard is connected,
the LED will not be lit. It mostly affects KVM users like those
of IBM BladeCenter, because they "connect" keyboards all day long.
Would you be so kind to review the attached patch?

-- Pete
