At most, I'm not being precise enough in expressing myself here. "old
style ADB keyboard support" means ADB keyboard support through the
mac_keyb.c driver, not the HID driver. For all I know this implies ADB
keycodes. I did not mean to imply ADB keyboards are not supported or some

To return to the topic at hand: I had the impression that ADB keycode
support is removed from current boot-floppies kernels, is that correct?

That kind of thing pulled off in the middle of a stable release was
calling for trouble, that's all I say. Anyway, it's ancient history, and
I'm not the one who answers the questions on that topic so I could care
