Use pckbc with a pnpbios. Only have a keyboard plugged in (mouse is USB). Note that the keyboard is not functional, even though dmesg shows:
Dec 29 17:52:08 pinky /netbsd: pnpbios0 at mainbus0: nodes 14, max len 74
Dec 29 17:52:08 pinky /netbsd: pckbc0 at pnpbios0 index 4 (PNP0303): kbd port
It does't attach a keyboard to it, checking the code it only attaches the keyboard once an aux port has been found.
Note that this maybe a quirk of my bios detecting there's no mouse and therefore not providing pnp info for it. I'm not sure what the spec says on this.
Have just a keyboard plugged into the ps2 interface, and no ps/2 mouse.
Currently worked around by commenting out:
pckbc* at pnpbios? index ?
in the kernel config and using:
pckbc0 at isa?
