 linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-powerpc: no keyboard input during initramfs -> no

There is something like this is in the dmesg:
[    8.341684] ohci_hcd: USB 1.1 'Open' Host Controller (OHCI) Driver
[    8.363783] ehci_hcd: USB 2.0 'Enhanced' Host Controller (EHCI) Driver
[    8.371193] Warning! ehci_hcd should always be loaded before uhci_hcd and 
ohci_hcd, not after
