	It seems that this mechanism hasn't made it in to the DragonFly

	I found the debug settings - but all I got was:

May  1 13:02:10 df1 kernel: ums_intr: status=13

	Which helpfully translates to IO error.

	I did find that not having the ums device open prevents the
keyboard from locking up.

	Perhaps even a fullblown sync up to the NetBSD stack - opinions
anyone ?
