Bug#367149: kbd-chooser: [powerpc] does not detect ADB keyboards

Package: kbd-chooser
Version: 1.26

It appears that kbd-chooser does not actually detect ADB keyboards as used 
for example on Powerbook G4 laptops.
Until Beta 2 keyboard selection only worked because of the default mac-usb 
keyboard added in usb-kbd.c, but that's absolutely not optimal.

After a short look at Frank Lichtenhelds laptop, it seems that the 
keyboard can be detected from the /proc/bus/input/devices file (see 

It's currently unsure if the keyboard will work correctly with AT keymaps 
as well as USB-MAC. I'll test that over the next days.
