Should not this check to be rather:
(kbd_token_bits != 0 && (kbd_token_bits & BIT(KBD_LED_OFF_TOKEN)) != BIT(KBD_LED_OFF_TOKEN))
To express that we have at least one token at it is different from
> kbd_led_present = true;
And more important, there are three ways how to control keyboard
1) Via SMBIOS token
2) Via SMBIOS call 4/11/0x2 (arg2, byte0)
3) Via SMBIOS call 4/11/0x2 (arg3, byte2)
You are adding special case when only one SMBIOS toekn OFF is present
which belongs to 1).
Therefore there should be same check for 2) and 3) that there are more
the one option to set...
