It does make senes. With init=/bin/sh, the keyboard works with
the kernel built-in keymap. Later on, your userland scripts are
loading a keymap, which is probably designed for the "wrong"
keycode type, and thus produce the incorrect results.

If you have CONFIG_ADB_KEYCODES set, then either clear it or
boot with keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1 on the cmdline (you
can also change it via /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid)

Heh, yup

You wouldn't have gone far without this one ;)

Ok, well, those above don't really matter. It really looks like you are
either running CONFIG_RTC instead of CONFIG_PPC_RTC or I broke something
in the Cuda driver on non-SMP (guess what ? my 8500 is SMP :) I'll check
the later case here.
