I never added CAPS_IS_CONTROL to the 'new' ADB subsystem, mostly because
nobody seemed to miss it ( the driver is from 2007, and it's default
since 2008 or so ) and also because of the weird way the caps lock key
is handled by ADB keyboards - it tries to emulate a mechanical locking
switch, which some older ADB keyboards actually have ( like the
Extended II ) so you don't get normal up/down events, you get a single
down for the first press, and a single up for the second.
I'm not quite sure how this ever really worked with the old drivers.
Mine's cheating and sends a down, up sequence for each press.
To make things more annoying, on laptop keyboards the PMU handles the
caps lock LED, not the keyboard driver.
