xf86-input-keyboard not working

I've got it!

It has nothing to do with xf86-input-keyboard or xorg-server, but with
startx. It nowadays starts X on the current tty due to an issue in
systemd-logind (according to bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=806491).
This causes xorg-server to enable keeptty and thus the trouble.

>From my point of view the corresponding patch
(cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/app/xinit/commit/startx.cpp?id=44915d6953076849b69
a017f6fc8234b0f254362) should be considered a bug. To fix it properly, the
xinit configure ought to have a enable-systemd-logind option with auto
detection - just like xorg-server.

Please fix it.

Thanks to everyone for their help.

Ingo
