	When attaching the console keyboard the macppc port first checks
	with OF if usb-kbd-ihandles exists.  On older version of OF
	this fails.  Next it checks for adb-kbd-ihandle, and here
	lies the problem.  It seems that adb-kbd-ihandle exists
	even if there is no adb keyboard present.  This means that
	the non-existent abd keyboard will be console
	instead of the USB keyboard which is the last fallback.
	Have an adb keyboard configured in the kernel, but not present.
	Then try to use a USB keyboard as console on an old iMac.
	I'm not sure.
