Laptop keymap... was: battery on notebook

Well the reason I ask is I never got a genmap binary out of the Make
run.  Does the keymap get generated by some other means? Oh, I see
now; I took a look at the rest of the makefile and there's stuff in
there.  I sure don't quite understand the new Makefile layout.  I
guess that's a 2.6 kernel thing.  Apparently when I last built this
(CVS from June 7th, the compile must not have worked with genmap.
When I tried it now, it seems that there's something missing.  I'll
have to give the kernel a try with make and see if genmap gets
built properly.  I'll have the latest CVS pull from yesterday which
has a date of Aug on it.
