USB keyboard problems

I finally got a few minutes to play with several keyboards and CMOS options
to see what is going on with my keyboard on my ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe
motherboard.  I need USB Legacy Keyboard and Mouse support enabled for
things like GRUB and Plan 9 but when I boot into DragonFly with this
CMOS option enabled I can't use my keyboard.

If I turn off legacy USB support on the keyboard it works fine in
DragonFly but not in GRUB [at all].  I can of course just twiddle the
bits when I boot dragonfly as a workaround for now but this seems like
a bug that needs fixing as I don't have this problem in Windows or
other OSes...

I wish I had more information than a dmesg dump but here it is:

Let me know if you need more information.  This is a fairly busy work
week for me but I can probably do more stuff in my evenings 
[GMT -06:00]

Other than that the new USB stuff seems to work very well.
