I am not 100% sure, bvut i remember that the 2.6 kernels translate all kind of
mac keyboards to the same thing. As such, there is no ADB keyboard needed
anymore, as the kernel exports it as a normal keyboard to the userland (or
something such, i am no expert in this, CCing debian-powerpc).

There is maybe still some need for some specialized layout though.
