Any simple way of switching this at run time? I'd like to be able to
drop to my ECS console from my XamigaRetina on grf1. Obviously, the X servers
do this at will, so I guess there is a way. Really nice would be a way to
toggle which driver has the keyboard with a key combo.
I suppose this a a good opportunity to try some kernel hacking. Any
suggestions as to where to start, or would this all have to be in ite.c?
My guess is that the keyboard driver would need a mod to signal ite when
that keycombo is hit.
