I sent a patch to remove legacy keyboard support in favour of the new,
modularized kbd keyboard driver. Egbert suggested that the way to go
with this was to deprecate the legacy driver and not compile it by
default for a while. After that the legacy driver could hopefully be
removed. Would it be appropriate to take this firste step with the next
release? The release after that could then remove the legacy driver.
