Description Jose M Rodriguez 2009-03-03 01:00:09 UTC
	xorg-server can't load usb keyboards via config/hal.
	It fails at device open, as hal have a device key.

	This is not noticeable in an stock system.
	The presence of an atkbd without a hal device key
	makes xorg-server load the module.

	Seems that xorg-server keyboard is not device oriented
	and hal must not have a device key for usb keyboard

Fix: Don't add a device key for usb keyborads, as is done
	for at ones (PS/2)

	- hf_device_set_input(device, "keyboard", devname);
	+ hf_device_set_input(device, "keyboard", NULL);

How-To-Repeat: 	You can see this on the Xorg logs.
	In systems without kernel atkbd device, xorg-server
	can't get a functional keyboad

  Modified files:
    sysutils/hal         Makefile 
    sysutils/hal/files   patch-hald_freebsd_hf-usb.c 
  Set the device node to NULL for usb keyboards.  The xorg keyboard
  driver has the ability to open character devices, but in our case
  syscons always owns the devices.  This should allow usb only
  setups as well as help people who are setting xorg input options
  on usb devices.
