This is not really related to this patch set, but LED bitmap for input
devices is sent in their uevents so you can check it in udev. This will
assumes that input driver knows whether LED is present on device or not
(and for PS/2 keyboards it does not and assumes they are there so your
X1's keyboard tell you that it has 3 standard LEDs).
