X on spx (VAXstation 4000/90) & keyboard/wskbd issue

For sheer entertainment value I've just enabled the raw framebuffer
wsfb X driver on NetBSD/vax, plus the three lines in the kernel to
return WSDISPLAYIO_LINEBYTES to enable it.
Just starting it fails with the error below, while selecting wskbd in
the xorg.conf allows X to start
but it cannot process the keyboard.
What is the best approach here - getting raw keyboard mode to work, or
running on wskbd?
Note, of course an accelerated driver would be significantly more
usable than any raw fb driver,
but that shouldn't preclude having the raw driver, and the
keyboard/mouse issues are going to be the same :)
---- Error without xorg.conf ----
Fatal server error:
can't switch keyboard to raw mode. Enable support for it in the kernel
or use for example:
Option "Protocol" "wskbd"
Option "Device" "/dev/wskbd0"
---- Sample xorg.conf to enable wskbd ----
