Of course, I have read it but forgot about it then.

It must be the probing routine then. My keyboard here is at acpi but not on 
isa0.

Is all in the kernel which is needed for isa? It should be, but a check could 
help.

Maybe the hints from man will help you:

Kernel configuration:

     options KBD_RESETDELAY=N
     options KBD_MAXWAIT=N
     options KBDIO_DEBUG=N
     device atkbdc

Are they still there?

/boot/device.hints:

     hint.atkbdc.0.at="isa"
     hint.atkbdc.0.port="0x060"

I do not know if some defaults have changed.

Erich
