Keyboard case stopped working on pacman update
Argh! It happened again!

I just got the pinephone re-setup back the way I wanted it last week. It was working fine, then a big update from pacman -Syyu, and the keyboard case stopped working again! Typing -- battery seems to be working fine, the phone boots if I give the wake button a single press.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Or even a suggesting of what packaged might be the culprit here?
I reinstalled linux-pinephone and rtl8723bt-firmware-megi

Since nobody else seems to be running into this, and the big difference in my setup from most people is I've been disabling sddm and booting to console, maybe it's related to that? But... keyboard not responding in console? How could that be? Plus re-enabling sddm doesn't get the keyboard working.

Oh, here's another (maybe better) direction to consider, because I want to boot to console with the keyboard, I've been editing /boot/boot.txt with fbcon=rotate:1 to rotate the console. Maybe uboot is doing something on upgrade with the non-default boot.txt that is breaking the keyboard?

Thanks for any clues!
