PS/2 keyboard idetified as USB keyboard

Hi,

I am using PS/2 keyboard in my system. But the kernel dmesg reports
that the keyboard is an USB based keyboard
----------
input: PC Speaker
input: USB HID v1.11 Keyboard [USB Device] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2
input: USB HID v1.11 Mouse [USB Device] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2
-------------
The only clue i have about system hardware is that LPC bus is being
used to connect SuperIO chip with CPU.  If this is the case, how does
the PS/2 signals get routed thorugh PCI bus.

But in another system with different I/O hardware, the dmesg report is:
------------
input: PC Speaker
input: ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse on isa0060/serio1
input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0
---------------
Also, What does the string "isa0060/serio1" denote ? Is this related to
ISA bus.

Thanks in advance,
Arun.

i have several pointing devices with usb connection on the cable and adapter
to PS-2 connector.  Could be the same thing inside that chipset now.
