Maybe we can add some "shoot and run" ps2 initialization code to 
coreboot that runs before most other code, giving the keyboard or kbc 
time to initialize while we do all the other stuff.

Have we considered threading in coreboot? It seems the time we spend in 
ramstage is unsignificant and the effort of multitasking in romstage is 
not worth the trouble.
