    No, please don't do that. ADB is a bit more complex than a simple serial
    port. Please leave the default ADB keyboard and mouse input mechanisms
    unchanged, or extend the driver in a way that will work with just one mouse
    and one keyboard as it does now. Without requiring EvStack, that is.

    Well, I suppose I'll have the 'serial keyboards' send the standard key
    event codes and use the normal keymap. The keyboard driver should still
    keep track of
    the key states, right?
