 I added support for that in adbkbd a little while ago, by default all
 ADB keyboard treat the right Alt/Control/Shift keys the same as the
 left - it works at least on my Extended II ( not on my iBook, the right
 shift is still identical to the left ). Might be worth sprinkling some
 printf()s to figure out what exactly your keyboard type is.

 I have a cheap ohci card in my 7200.

 Many of my drivers will switch depth on ioctl(WSDISPLAYIO_SMODE,
 WSDISPLAYIO_MODE_DUMBFB) so X gets the colours and the console gets
 8bit speed.
 have fun
