I think this true only for the newer keyboards.  I don't think anything
before a type-4 was capable of reporting its type; I'm fairly sure
there's no way for the host to distinguish between a type-2 and a
type-3, at least.

How relevant this is to sparc64 (as opposed to sparc), I don't know,
but if they're willing to run with type-3/type-2 keybaords....
