Ok, that's actually good news... So if someone can trigger the keyboard
bug in the g-d-s-2.6.7-r15 kernel, then try adding this to the
gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.7-r15 ebuild and re-emerging/compiling the
kernel...  This will exclude all the non-sparc patches...

Test that out, slowly remove them until you find the culprit...
I am suspicious of 2905_mouse_click_fix.patch as it's the only one that
touches the input code, so try re-adding that one first to see if it
rebreaks the keyboard.
