Further experiments show that I can get some external USB keyboards
to work, but not all of them. I have tried three external keyboards and two
did not work, while one worked.

Once I've got through a certain stage with booting, the internal usb keyboard
also works. Some comparison:

Old kernel (Debian 2.6.26-13lenny2)
grep -i keyboard 20100211-0-dmesg
[ 7.910715] usb 1-2: Product: Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad

[ 10.360896] input,hidraw3: USB HID v1.10 Device [Apple Computer Apple
Internal Keyboard/Trackpad] on usb-0001:10:1a.0-2

New kernel (Debian 2.6.32-5)
grep -i keyboard ~root/20100211-1-dmesg
[ 9.982718] generic-usb 0003:05AC:1000.0001: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11

I am no expert, but I wonder why the input Apple Internal Keyboard is loaded
so much later. Note that the cryptofs questions comes up around at 10 or 11
seconds. So with the new kernel 60 seconds is much too late for it.
It is not a timing problem because with rootdelay=120 I just get the input
message around 180 seconds.
Maybe a module is missing?
Which one?
