NAMEkeyboard-request - event signalling console press of Alt-UpArrow
DESCRIPTIONThe keyboard-request event is generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon when the keyboard request key combination (typically Alt-UpArrow) is pressed on the console.
The support for this event depends on your kernel configuration. Suggested use for this event includes spawning a new login console when pressed, or for secure attention key support.
