New comment by Skirmisher on void-packages repository

I haven't seen it either, but the commit message says it's something to do with warm reboots, and seems to work around it by basically power-cycling the panel regulator.

I can't imagine why it would be specific to Void, unless a config option is somehow the culprit, or someone has come up with a patch I didn't see. But I haven't checked on other distros specifically, or asked other users.

I did confirm that all the relevant drivers (ehci_hcd/etc., usbhid, hid-generic) are still built in, which is what made it weird. But I also haven't tested it again, since changing the kernel cmdline is kind of a manual process.

It might well be a keyboard firmware issue too, in which case it has nothing to do with Void. Maybe I'll try reverting to the stock firmware (which has its own issues...) and see if that changes its behavior.
