 With Q4C07/EC 0.3.06, I had a SKU202 laptop breaking into OpenFirmware via
 mouse movements.  This behavior was 100% reproducible for a while but
 seems to have since stopped.

  0. Upgrade the XO from Q4C06 to Q4C07 by installing os18.
  1. Reboot the XO; do some stuff in os18 for a while then reboot.
  2. Move your finger in circles on the touchpad; you will get an open
 firmware prompt with some random gibberish.
  3. If you are lucky rebooting and repeating the movement will get you
 into OFW again.

 The XO in question seems to have an AVC touchpad, although initializing
 the touchpad for X windows seems to often be broken, especially when doing
 this test.
