Last modified: 2013-12-08 19:49:52 EST
Description of problem:
the virtual USB keyboard of qemu doesn't work as expected in grub in Fedora. auto-repeat will start in a very short time in grub. So people only can type extremely fast in grub, or the keys will repeat.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up a Fedaora guest
2. Go into grub command line
3. Tpye something
You will find if you type in normal speed, the keys will start repeat.
People can type in grub normally
#qemu-kvm -hda /root/fedora.qcow2 -m 2048 -vnc :1 -device piix3-usb-uhci
2. kernel version
host kernel: 2.6.32-25.el6.x86_64
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current

Retest with rhel6.1. The bios was rebased there to newer version.
Tested with seabios-0.6.1.2-3.el6.x86_64. Can not hit this problem again. The use keyboard works well.
