  I added wsmux to my kernel config this morning, for just this reason,
and the kernel and X are working fine.  The system is i386, but X is from
xfree86-current of a few weeks ago, since my radeon board is not supported
by xfree86 4.1.0.  The (only) keyboard is plugged into the PS/2 keyboard
port on the motherboard.  There's no explicit specification of the device
to use in my XF86Config file.  dmesg shows:

wsdisplay0 at vga1 kbdmux -1: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)
pckbc0 at isa0 port 0x60-0x64
pckbd0 at pckbc0 (kbd slot)
pckbc0: using irq 1 for kbd slot
wskbd0 at pckbd0: console keyboard, using wsdisplay0
wsdisplay0: screen 1 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsdisplay0: screen 2 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsdisplay0: screen 3 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsdisplay0: screen 4 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsmux1: connecting to wsdisplay0

  Maybe you'll find some clues in there.
