Well, he'll try anyway.  My current theory is that evdev needs a
paranoid mode where it will just refuse to touch anything that looks
like a keyboard, which should fall through to the old F8 driver setup
without mucking with XKB settings.  That'll punt far enough for F9, I
suspect.

Thanks for the continued testing and patience while we work this stuff
out.  X is unforgivingly subtle in some corners and you just don't
notice it until you try to change it.
