I just tried a -current i386 kernel of todays sources, and when I start X
(4.1.0 build from source tree a few days ago) I don't get a working
keyboard and mouse. No response to mouse movement or button presses,
and most keyboard keys do not give a response while the few that do,
give weird (control) characters etc. X does not report any errors on
startup. A somewhat older kernel (sources about a week old I think),
gives no such problems with X.

I noticed some new wscons related devices appeared recently, so maybe
a MAKEDEV all and/or upgrading the wscons tools is enough to make
X happy again? However, before I proceed with that I'd like to hear
whether this is the case, as I didn't see any mention of this in

If not, I'd be happy to assist in tracking the problem down. Just give
me a hint what further info is needed (for a PR). Meanwhile I'm
happily running my somewhat older kernel.
