  I am, it's pretty simple, just run:

echo "host" > /sys/devices/platform/s3c2410-ohci/usb_mode
echo "1" > /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-pm-host.0/hostmode

  This'll put the Freerunner in to powered USB host mode, then just plug in
the keyboard and it'll work. Personally I've made a .desktop file to switch
into and out of host mode. To switch back to unpowered device mode just run:

echo "device" > /sys/devices/platform/s3c2410-ohci/usb_mode
echo "0" > /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-pm-host.0/hostmode
