Schlepping around in the NetBSD 0.9 console driver I noticed that
there is support for letting X do a beep but no support for driving
the keyboard leds via an ioctl.  Has anyone done this?  If not I can
belt in a few patches, along with a tidy up for that *disgusting* hack
for the X_BELL.

How about creating a new system .h file that defines the ioctl's for
the keyboard leds and bell?  Something like kbd.h....
