no.  these are adb keymaps which are deprecated.  boot-floppies and
the default powermac kernel do not support adb keycodes, only linux
keycodes (read i386). instead use keymaps under i386/* there are a
couple new ones there for Apple USB keyboards (which can be used on a
x86 PC or any other USB capable system).
