It's fighting back.

I quickly tried:

uc> find pckbc
[125] pckbc0 at isa? port ? size ? iomem ? iosiz ? irq ? drq ? drq2 ?
uc> find pckbd
[346] pckbd* at pckbc? slot ?
uc> disable pckbc
[125] pckbc0 disabled
uc> disable pckbd
[346] pckbd* disabled

and no joy:

ukbd0 at uhidev0: 8 modifier keys, 6 key codes
wskbd0 at ukbd0 mux 1
wskbd0: connecting to wsdisplay0

So then I tried the PCKBC_CNATTACH_SELFTEST option, leaving pckbc and
pckbd alone, and:

pckbc0 at isa0 port 0x60-0x64
pckbdprobe: reset error 5
pckbd0 at pckbc0 (kbd slot)
pckbc0: using irq 1 for kbd slot
wskbd0 at pckbd0: console keyboard, using wsdisplay0

The test seems to fail, but it grabs console anyway...

Thanks for the hints!
