Indeed not. I don't remember, but it is well possible that at least some
newworld laptops still used adb keyboard internally, while desktop systems all
moved to usb ones.

It should be possible to detect the right thing via some /proc/device-tree
parsing. Once we know exactly the situation, i would voluntarily provide the
code for that, as we did already for the airport detecting back in the days ...
