     pckbc - PC (ISA) keyboard controller driver

     pckbc* at isa? flags 0x00		  (alpha, amd64, i386, loongson)
     pckbc* at ebus?			  (sparc64)
     pckbd* at pckbc?
     pms*   at pckbc?

     The pckbc driver handles resource allocation and device attachment for
     the traditional PC/AT keyboard controller.	 It provides two logical
     connections for child devices, the ``keyboard'' slot for a keyboard and
     the ``auxiliary'' slot for mice (the latter might be missing in older
     keyboard controllers).

     To avoid attaching a phantom PS/2 keyboard device, the pckbc driver will
     attempt to detect USB legacy keyboard emulation on amd64 and i386
     systems.  Unfortunately, the detection heuristics may fail on older
     systems with a real PS/2 keyboard.	 The keyboard can be forced to attach
     on these systems, by changing the device flags to 1.
