Well here's what I know: Our sparc kernels are built with the usbkbd
driver built in, and that's the only USB keyboard support provided.
The usb-uhci or usb-ohci drivers are not on there and not loaded, and
neither does it try to load the alternative hid-based keyboard drivers
(hid, keybdev). So if the usbkbd driver works, using the keyboard in
what the kernel calls it "Boot Protocol mode" I think the sparc stuff
should work (unsure if it still needs to load usb-uhci firt though), but
if it needs to be in full HID mode, a lot of work needs to be done to get
sparc to support that.
