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.

I can test this when is ready. (An explamation for way to
infirm/confirm that the keyboard was detected correctly would be nice
to have before doing this, 'though).

PowerBook 5,2 here.
