The only thing I see is that each ADB keyboard device will have an entry
in sysfs to change the sysrq key, but they will all set the same global.
It's a little misleading, but I don't think it's a major issue. And
before anyone asks, I have in fact had multiple ADB keyboards attached
to a single machine. It was useful for multi-player games.
