[arch-general] Keyboard issue with kernel 4.15.5 (possible Arch issue?)

Hey hey,
I updated yesterday, from some;thing like a 4.13 or 4.14 kernel to version 
4.15.5 and couldn't use my PS/2 keyboard. I saw the LEDs flashing when the 
system started, but couldn't get any response from the keyboard upon login. 
I've managed to get the system going with a USB keyboard.

My PS/2 keyboard is rather old. Is it more likely that the keyboard is broken, 
or is there a chance of a kernel configuration breaking usage of the PS/2 

Best wishes,
