Anton, this is the interface proposed by the input maintainer, Dmitry,
to change which modifiers gets to light the keyboard LEDs (the exact
names may change, but the principle should be firm). I know this is
inconvenient for console-setup for handling hotplugged keyboards, but
Dmitry prefers to avoid introducing a virtual multiplexer as explained
