Yes. I don't need and will disable when building T9.

PS2 keyboard. For clarification, I have intermittent problems with the
keyboard on this machine with anything to do with preempt. Sometimes it
works on boot sometimes it does not. Actually since it is so
unpredictable, I can't even say for sure that it has to do with preempt,
but it hasn't failed yet on rc4-mm1. I have tried to find a pattern and
have yet to do so. Possibly pertinent info:
