Interesting -- you may be the first person I've seen use the "kbd" instead
of "keyboard".

Does the key work with the "keyboard" driver?  Your configuration otherwise
looks okay (xfree86/pc105/gb).

Also, can you tell me what this "Dev Phys" option is?  It's not documented
in kbd(4x).  (I have to admit I don't know much about the new kbd driver,
nor evdev, yet.)
