    config: improve stale ThinkPad keyboard situation
    Neither the DragonFly release nor snapshots accept the builtin keyboard
    of a Lenovo T430u (and apparently a couple of others).  FreeBSD as old as
    8.3, however, works just fine.  Turns out that the KB_CONF_FAIL_IF_NO_KBD
    flag of atkbd(4) still lingers in GENERIC, SOEKRIS and X86_64_GENERIC.
    Tested against regressions when hotplugging USB keyboards without a PS/2
    keyboard present on an old Athlon64.
    We have one panic report by sephe in the kbdsw code, which is triggered
    by pressing a key on a previously unresponsive keyboard, but no further
    info for debugging at this point.
    Force the issue now that the release has been branched.
    Backed-by: sephe, swildner
