    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...
