What exactly does CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV do?

I found that _not_setting it, 2.4.31 still looks for keyboard at boot:

Oct 9 10:41:49 kernel: keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(ed)
Oct 9 10:41:50 kernel: keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(f4)

and doing a find/grep in the code reveals that CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV doesn't
seem to do anything anywhere except def/undef itself:

[root@xxxxxxxxxxxx]# find . -name \*.h -exec grep -iHn "INPUT_KEYBDEV" {} \;
./include/linux/autoconf.h:482:#undef CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV
./include/config/input/keybdev.h:1:#undef CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV

[root@xxxxxxxxxxxx]# find . -name \*.c -exec grep -iHn "INPUT_KEYBDEV" {} \;
... nothing...

Therefore I still have to manually edit include/linux/pc_keyb.h to undef the
(no) keyboard timeouts:



"When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble, Give a whistle..."
