Seems to me that this could be related to ACPI. I think the device is
not generating any interrupt and trying to activate it with
acpi_activate_device() did not work. Also, trying to use pckbc at acpi
makes the keybord stop responding and the touchpad still doesn't work:

Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pckbc0 at acpi0 (PNP0303): kbd port
Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pckbc0: io 0x60,0x64 irq 1
Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pckbc1 at acpi0 (SYN1003): aux port
Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pckbc1: irq 12

And later:
Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pckbdprobe: reset response 0xfa
Nov  8 15:00:04 neuron /netbsd: pmsprobe: reset error 60

Any ideas ?
