Hi Gyrd,

thank you for reporting the issue!

I have just committed a slightly different patch to -CURRENT and plan
to merge it to 10-STABLE in time for the next BETA.

You may want to check-out r271958 ...

The approach I have chosen it to let "NO" continue to stand for "do
not load any keymap", while "no" is now recognized as equivalent to

The new semantics of the keymap parameter in rc.conf are:

        keymap='' ==> do not load any keymap (unchanged)
        keymap=NO ==> do not load any keymap (unchanged)
        keymap=no ==> load Norwegian keymap  (new)

This may still catch people that have edited rc.conf to use "no" in
the meaning "no keymap" by accident, but I see no other approach that
better complies with POLA ...

An alternative to a MFC to 10-STABLE (and 10.1) might be to mention
this specific case in the release notes (and to suggest "keymap=no.kbd"
as a work-around). But I'll try to get approval for the MFC in time for
10.1-BETA3 ...

Regards, STefan
