 Well, not exactly ported, but hacked up enough it worked the last time I 
tried, but you have to disable the virtual terminal (CONFIG_VT) as it is 
the keyboard driver (lk201) that has not been ported at all.  If in doubt, 
please start with "decstation_defconfig", that should build and boot 
successfully, and work from there.

 I have a PMAZ-A around, though I am not sure if I have everything needed 
to wire it to a device (hmm, I should probably make sure if I am to be 
serious about adding support for the PMAZC...).  Meanwhile I can have a 
look at the source code to see if there is anything obviously wrong there.
