It's actually not too hard to do.  (I did it to a vger tree for a while).
Just gotta backport the keyboard changes from 2.2.8 (or was it 7 when usb
went in?) and then fix a few problems that will no doubt show up w/ the
multikeyboard patch.  It'll work, and should be good enough until one of
the OHCI drivers in the new USB stack works w/ ppc (tho I suspect it might
be a bit of a pain, w/ the kernel_thread link problem, or whatever it
