my PS/2 keyboard does not work with the latest kernel build (but is fine otherwise)

Description of problem:
A PS/2 Keyboard stopped working with 188.8.131.52-21.fc7.
It works with 184.108.40.206-10.fc7, and works at the BIOS level too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to 220.127.116.11-21.fc7 and see if you're ps/2 keybaord works.
Keyboard does not work, not even the caps/num lock leds.
The machine is a P3 450Mhz
Could you possibly try some of these other kernels to see where the problem
starts? You would need to erase the -21 kernel first, then install each one of
these using rpm and erase after testing:
Also, can you boot to runlevel 3 (text mode) and see if the keyboard works
there? This may be an X driver problem of some kind caused by the kernel update.
Just edit /etc/inittab and change the "5" to a "3" in this line:
My system defaults to init level 3 anyway. The keyboard works at the BIOS, but
not after that.
Hmm, the problem seems to have gone away... I've installed cPanel yesterday
(which i already hate) but i doubt if that's what solved the problem.
Anyway, I'm closing this bug report, and will reopen if it comes back later.
