Great range of tests. Nice that you also tested serial installs.

AFAICT all tests lead to the expected results :-)
I've added some comments for some of the tests.

For the 2.6 kernel, the code in at-kbd.c checks for the presence of an AT 
connector (or maybe not for the connector itself, but for a kbd attached 
to it).
As I don't force the display of an AT keymap list for IA64 in usb-kbd.c, 
the result is correct with the current code.

That the keyboard works correctly is the result of the usb-mac-us keymap 
being the same as an AT keymap (unlike the usb-mac keymaps for e.g. FR 
and BE).

usbfs (which populates /proc/bus/usb) will be mounted (and unmounted 
afterwards) by kbd-chooser if it has not been mounted beforehand.
