OK, thanks, but I am still confused. I had to add CONFIG_DUMMY_KEYB=y
manually (i386), as nowhere could I find an option in menuconfig (and
find/grep revealed nothing either)...

This now boots with no keyboard warnings, as suggested (after I removed keymap
etc. from start scripts). But I still think I done it all wrong?
