I'm running the latest -current on an amd64x2 machine running in

time now:
Maybe you have a similar problem as I had. My new PeeCee has three
pckbc(4) in its ACPI table. Two for the real PS/2 ports and a third
for the USB-to-PS/2 keyboard emulation. The later uses the same
IO-ports as the real PS/2 keyboard port. It is even present in the
ACPI table when disabled in the BIOS setup. This causes pckbc(4) to
panic(9). Short term solution: disable pckbc(4) at acpi(4) in
userconf(4) so that only pckbc(4) at isa(4) attaches. Long term
solution: compile custom kernel that has only pckbc0 and pckbc1 in
its config.

Please take a moment to file a PR about this so it doesn't get lost
(if you haven't already done so).

Thanks to all for your replies.  My bug is kern/41066 and I'd appreciate
a critique of the info I included and/or suggestions about what I could
add to the bug report to make it more useful. I've learned a lot about
ACPI in the last two days but you guys know a lot more than I do.
