Wscons itself is not PC centric. But at this point probably
only hardware drivers for PC hardware were present.
In the meantime, there is LK201/401 support which is used by
pmax (in the [nisimura] version) and alpha (with new scc driver).

It shouldn't be too hard - include "struct lk201_state" into the
keyboard's per-device data, fill out the "attachment" part and
use the functions from "lk201_ws.c". "zskbd.c" is an example.
Ask me if there are questions. (Can't test myself unless the VS3200
can netboot NetBSD - doesn't seem to be the case at the moment.)
