Design question :

Why keyboard is controlled in kernel-space, if Mach is microkernel ?
Shouldn't data-stream be redirected from keyboard to userspace etc.
Maybe not raw, but translated to :
pressed key nr 66
relased key nr 27
(if there are no more key than 127 it can be byte per info)
So userspace program can trivially translate this stream to
key values, allow rates > 30 keys/s, delay < 250ms, dozen modifiers
