I have no idea what the real differences between kbd and console-setup are 
and what the future of both packages will be next to console-setup.
I tried creating the udeb for both and was successful for kbd (see 
attached patch).

I could probably also do it for console-tools, but that would result in a 
much bigger package as for some reason loadkeys in console-tools depends 
on three libraries from libconsole. The one in kbd only depends on libc.

Cheers,
