Generated XF86Config are not XFbdev friendly anyway, i guess no m68k or ppc
user uses them. Even the stupid XF86Config checker of xdm says my valid fbdev
XF86Config is bad, i had to hand remove them. Also notice that the standard
m68k/ppc fbdev XF86Config has the XKBDisable flag set, i think.

Sure, i am using the amiga-fr kernel keymap. Works fine for both X an console.
every so often i have to hard reboot, because some stupid program suppose i
have a standard us i386 keymap, and set it to it. the kbd package should avoid
that, it's bad for harddisks, ...
