Well, I would prefer not to touch anything outside Linux and
this driver. And these settings seem to be implementation specific.
So, this is why introduce Linux module parameters and don't extend
the kbdif protocol.

Hm, better bool then? invbool will require parameter name change to
something like "with_ptr_dev" which might confuse, e.g.
default was to go with pointer device, now we have with_ptr_dev
module parameter: do I now need to set it to preserve the old behavior?
The answer is no (because of invbool), but you have to dig for it.

Will bool work for you?
