When I've upgraded to xorg-server-1.13.1 keyboard stopped functioning. I then downgrade to xorg-server-1.12.4 and xorg-drivers-1.12 and it works now.

My USE flags for both xorg-server and xorg-drivers below:

$ equery u xorg-server
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for x11-base/xorg-server-1.12.4:
 U I
 - - dmx         : Build the Distributed Multiheaded X server
 - - doc         : Adds extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
 - - ipv6        : Adds support for IP version 6
 - - kdrive      : Build the kdrive X servers
 - - minimal     : Install a very minimal build (disables, for example, plugins, fonts, most drivers, non-critical features)
 + + nptl        : Enable support for Native POSIX Threads Library, the new threading module (requires linux-2.6 or better usually)
 - - static-libs : Build static libraries
 - - tslib       : Build with tslib support for touchscreen devices
 + + udev        : Enable sys-fs/udev integration (device discovery, power and storage device support, etc)
 + + xnest       : Build the Xnest server
 + + xorg        : Build the Xorg X server (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
 - - xvfb        : Build the Xvfb server

Xorg.0.log will tell you the problem immediately.

My first guess is you're not properly rebuilding x11-drivers/* for 1.13.
