How about changing macppc's GENERIC wscons cruft to:
wsdisplay0 at ofb? console ?
wskbd0 at ukbd? console ?
wskbd* at akbd? console ?
wsmouse0 at ams?
Sure, this will force people into use a USB keyboard who maybe don't
want to, but they can just comment that out, right?
(Yes, this isn't a real fix, but as I read it, this is not one but
two *hardware* bugs in OF's behavior as regards *-kbd-ihandle...
perhaps not something we can fix correctly.)
Or will this cause machines whose OF doesn't respond to usb-kbd-ihandle
AND which (actually) have no USB keyboard connected to have no
