If you build any of the targets that pulls in the usb support, usb hid
(keyboard) support should automatically get included. Building e.g.
undi--ecm.kpxe or intel--ecm.usb should probably pull it in.

Just be aware that you probably need to two commits following the usb
keyboard support commit, as there were some unforeseen regressions.
