I am always updating to the latest rc Kernel Release, that Linus shares via Git.

I also upgraded to the latest stable kernel version after rc-8, to
2.6.33. But since I am on 2.6.33 my Xorg evdev-Driver stopped working.
I can hit any key on the keyboard, but nothing will happen. The mouse
and the graphics are just fine and work well.

I have an Asus Eeepc 1101HA, with Gentoo and the psb-kmod driver compiled.

Xorg starts just fine, does not crash but the keyboard does not react.

Everything worked fine on 2.6.33-rc8.

Any hints what changed from 2.6.33-rc8 to 2.6.33 stable that made my
keyboard stop reacting?

Let me know and I will test.
