Is there a reason you have the PC-style keyboard driver (i8042) in
your kernel? Did you compile this kernel yourself? I would suggest
using a kernel without the i8042 driver, since no Macintosh needs
(or can use) it. This driver pokes at hard-coded addresses where
a standard PC has the keyboard interface, so it's probably hitting
something it shouldn't and confusing everything.

There is no reason, but it was switched on by default and I did not know that it is unuseful (I am newbie in kernel compilation and apple machines, I try to modify only the mandatory options).

I recompile the kernel without i8042 support and I will reply if the problem persists.

Many thanks,
