Can't test for one week (I'm at the telescope until next Tuesday). But
this affected basically all the keys on a PMAC G4 with standard (latest)
Apple USB keyboard.
AFAIR compiling with CONFIG_ADB off butchered everything: CONFIG_MAC_HID
was Y in .config but there was no mac_hid in /proc/sys/dev and the
keyboard was crazy.

Didn't know, so X is going to use raw ?
But now raw means cooked ?

Fine for most of these, but how do you get to the raw scancodes if you
want them ? I mean raw byte for byte from the hardware, anything else
cannot be called raw in my opinion.
Do we need a new mode for this (crude?) or did I miss the way to get at
the scancodes ?
