Sure, I will make this change.

I defined KDSETLED macro in pc_kbd.c (just like you did for the other
macros).  This makes compiling independent of the the Mach version.
Just like this code works on every Mach version (I forgot to mention
that in my previous mail).

So AFAIK I don't have to change anything here.

It is not accidental.  I think this patch is more appropriate here.  I
assume it can take a while before someone reads my autoconf related
patch while this small change is really small and can be checked in
some minutes.

So I would really like it if I could apply it all in once. :)

Urgh, I really wonder why I missed this, sorry.

Before doing that I will send the patch to bug-hurd first because both
Alfred and Roland asked me.
