Aren't the akbd entries in OFW even if there is no apparent ADB

Another option is to start reading the system name and build a
capabilities table in the kernel to work from.  We could then say
that all PowerBook systems use ADB, or some such.  I had some hacks
in a local tree to do that, but they got eaten by a hungry fsck.
