If you think I did not provide any justification, you might want to
read previous emails again.

This patch does not touch any API/ABI. The patch that did in a way was
touching the API/ABI was "install-config: Document expected kbd layout

fixes the script as per that change.

I promise to do that next week but once your datamap changes are
merged (or at least ACK'ed).
