I'm using my new (input api / serio) lk[24]01 keyboard driver each day
on my Athlon. Works great and doesn't have keymap problems since it can
now just use i386/PC keyboard layout (as all new keyboard drivers do).

Though, dz.c possibly needs to be updated to provide it's own serio
interface or you need to use "inputattach" (with a small patch to make
the new kbd known) to attach the keyboard after boot-up.

Works on PC and VAX right now...
