on a really small laptop running 3.0 with kernel GENERIC_TINY,
"wsconsctl -k -a" yields to the error message
"wsconsctl: /dev/wskbd: Device not configured"

According to my not-so-deep understanding of NetBSDs device drivers,
wskbd is compiled in and activated:

| $ dmesg | grep wskbd
| wskbd0 at pckbd0 (mux ignored): console keyboard
| wsdisplay0 at vga0 (kbdmux ignored): console (80x25, vt100 emulation),
|  using wskbd0 

Am I correct in assuming that wskbd is available according to boot
messages? Has something else to be activated in the kernel for
wsconsctl to work?
