[coreboot] Converting epia-n build to SeaBIOS

OK. So I seem to have got my build deploying seaBIOS (0.4.1) , but
appear to have hit a major obstacle.

No USB Keyboard Support!? This is a complete show stopper for me.

I've seen a thread from last summer talking about adding USB Kbd

Has anything happened anywhere on this ??

I'm now trying to decide whether I fancy my chances of adding CBFS
support to FILO or USB keyboard to SeaBIOS more !!!
