Nor does plugging a keyboard in work either. On the other hand, for the
application this computer is destined for, not being able to reboot is
far, far worse than adding a mouse/keyboard at run time, so I'm happy.
I'm still willing to work on and test patches, though, as I think it
would be good to get some form of fix into the kernel. And the fact
that 2.4 works shows that it is possible...
