Because I plug the keyboard into USB.

For my Cubietruck USB is working on Linux 3.4

USB works fine on the 3.4 kernel, the point I was making is that I am
now running debian jessie on a mainline kernel. This was raised as a
problem during earlier discussions about the Cubietruck / A20.

There are a number of things that aren't perfect but it's seemed to me
to be a major step forward for Debian on the A20 to have a mainline
fully OSS kernel.

If you are running mainline, then you do not get to complain about bits
or pieces not working. I would've thought that that was clear.

It's perfectly clear, I thought that others might find it useful to know that there is a working mainline kernel for this device.

I was simply informing people that I have a (mostly) working Debian setup with mainline kernel rather than the outdated 3.4 kernel. There was moaning about the lack of upstream kernels for this device so I went out to see if I could make a working mainline setup.

I am fully aware that I get to keep all of the pieces when I break the mainline kernel.
