Mkinitcpio hook to enable numlock

Hello everyone, I've made a small mkinitcpio hook to enable numlock in early userspace.
This way numlock can be enabled before the encrypt hook is run.

It's available on the AUR

Re: Mkinitcpio hook to enable numlock

EDIT: Disregard. This was apparently entirely to due with VMware guest clock out of sync with host, and nothing to do with this package...

I found a strange bug. If I have this hook enabled like so in my mkinitcpio.conf:

HOOKS=(base udev autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard numlock fsck)

systemd-journald does not start up correctly! This can be verifies by checking dmesg and comparing to the journal. systemd-journald logs a message at each boot to dmesg about the journal being corrupt, and checking the journal, all boot messages, including those about systemd-journald starting are lost.

Upon removing the numlock hook, rebuilding my initial ramdisk, and rebooting (twice, since the next boot yields the same thing) resolves the issue.
