because 2.4 kernels don't even have the sysctl when adb keycodes are
off.  

to ensure that things work properly adb keycodes MUST be disabled in
the kernel.  debians kernel does that, console-data and X depend on
that, boot-floppies absolutly depends on that.

the decision has been made, the work has been done, the transition is
complete. there is no reason to continue whining about it.  rtfm and
move on.
