I personally find the current Kconfig description:

config USB_KBD
tristate "USB HIDBP Keyboard (simple Boot) support"
depends on USB && INPUT
Say Y here only if you are absolutely sure that you don't want
to use the generic HID driver for your USB keyboard and prefer
to use the keyboard in its limited Boot Protocol mode instead.

This is almost certainly not what you want. This is mostly
useful for embedded applications or simple keyboards.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called usbkbd.

If even remotely unsure, say N.

shouldn't leave anyone dounting, but people are getting confused again and
again nevertheless.
