Thanks, but this doesn't look right - the I8042_CMD_CTL_WCTR command
should always takes a parameter. By passing NULL as the parameter,
the code will read the first byte from address 0 (which is I suspect
going to be 0x53). It's also unclear to me why this would help as the
first ps2_kbd_command() call will explicitly set the ps2 port CTR

Removing this code would cause it to not reset the keyboard. I don't
think that's right.
If you're having a keyboard failure on reboot, could you flash an
unmodified version of SeaBIOS (with debug level set to 7) and provide
the log (via cbmem)?
