Nak. As I've mentioned in my original email, I went down this route as well, only
to ask the question of why the special ENTER code was there, since all it did
was introduce problems elsewhere (like repeat ENTER handling, KP ENTER key...).
This is exactly why my solution was to get rid of the special ENTER code altogether.

The code in kgdboc already will do input device reset on kdb exit, so there is no need
to explicitely empty out the keyboard FIFO on every ENTER.

Thanks,
A
