I found a comment in the Serengeti DTS that says it would be nice to look at

somehow gets lost.

I booted with a coreboot + LAB kernel, but there are weird key problems
there too.  Even though each key shows up correctly in the shell, only a
random mix of the characters get passed to the shell (most of the times
every other character.) I was able to do an ls /dev/* by typing llss
//ddeevv//**, which passed the command once with Enter, then again with the
next Enter.

Is there a trick to this?  I'm tried it on SimNOW 4.4.1pub 4.4.2pub and
