I had the same problems, and took my KVM switch apart, expecting to find
the chips reversed.  They were in fact installed correctly, so at least in
my case, the problem exists regardless.  If I'm careful to have the KVM
switch on the same channel as a booting machine, and leave it on that
channel until the probing is done, everything seems to work fine.
Otherwise, the keyboard is not detected.
