[Xorg] Keyboard driver heads up

I just committed the patch to disable the legacy keyboard driver 
("keyboard") by default.  The plan is to mark this driver as deprecated 
for the 6.8.0 release, and to remove it entirely in the release after 
that.  The new modularized driver "kbd" has the same feature set and is 
available for most platforms, and should be used instead.

To enable compilation of the old driver, add

	#define UseDeprecatedKeyboardDriver YES

to host.def, or even better, fill out the keyboard stubs 
(hw/xfree86/os-support/<os>/os_kbd.c) for the platform in question, so 
the kbd driver will work there also.
