I have a TOSHIBA Satellite S855 with Bios 6.60 laptop.
When I try to use xen-4.3 with it I cannot get the keyboard to work... If I plug in a USB keyboard the USB keyboard functions fine...
I suspect Xen might have problems with this hardware.
I am running archlinux with the 3.9.3-1Arch kernel and xen-4.3 from the aur.
I see the same problem with xen-4.2 for what it is worth.
I found some hopefully useful output in the regular kernel boot messages as follows:

0.000000] DMI: TOSHIBA Satellite S855/Portable PC, BIOS 6.60 01/14/2013
0.045374] TOSHIBA Satellite detected - force copy of DSDT to local memory
    0.475982] serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
[ 0.492197] input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /devices/platform/i8042/serio0/input/input0

When I look at the dmesg output when running under xen I only get

[    3.725666] serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1

I have tried booting with apic=noirq but that had no noticable effect.
I have also attached 3 files.
the dmesg without xen, the dmesg with xen, and the dmesg ring of the xen boot itself.

I would like to know if anyone can propose a solution for me so I can use the build in keyboard.

I am willing to provide more information or test or if I have missed something please point it out for me...

Thanks much for your time.
