Turn on USB support for most USB devices.  udbp is not turned on since
NETGRAPH is not present in GENERIC at the moment.  Also, change some
settings to support USB installs:

- Add KBD_INSTALL_CDEV as an option to make /dev/kbd[01] actually work.
- Turn on keyboard probing in sc0.  The syscons driver will now use a
  flag documented in ukbd(4) but not in sc(4) that tells syscons to
  actively search for a keyboard device if none is found.  This allows
  USB keyboards to just be plugged in and instantly start working.
- Require the atkbd0 driver to actually probe to see if a keyboard is
  there.  This allows USB keyboards to be seen by sc0 if an AT keyboard
  isn't plugged into the computer.  This also means that you will no
  longer be able to plug an AT keyboard into a machine after it has
  booted a GENERIC kernel and use it.  AT keyboards aren't designed for
  this anyway.  USB keyboards are designed for this, and they work.

Instantly MFC'ing drive by commits is also not very nice.
