What sort of machine is this and what device is the console? The cnmagic
code only works on the console input device if that device has the cnmagic
wskbd.c currently does not support cnmagic. Someone should probably add
that. OTOH, someone should also change wscons so we don't translate from
USB keycodes to whatever we're using internally to what the X server
expects. It's redundant and really complicates things like adding cnmagic
