I'm having that weird problem on one of my computers too, I've reported
it here but then I started to blame my mainboard and BIOS because I
can't even boot into 2.6.25 which I was using months ago without an
issue. My keyboard stops working just after the parport* modules are
plugged. I really wonder what will happen if you blacklist lp, ppdev,
parport and parport_pc modules.
