I believe that this sysctl only exists on systems with *both* H the new
input layer *and* CONFIG_MAC_ADBKEYCODES. This was true as of 2.2.17, but
I haven't tested empirically since then.
I this is correct, then we can't use the sysctl to distinguish old kernels
with no new input layer from new kernels with no adb keycodes.
