Nothing. The keyboard should simply.

This is only required if you want to use the keyboard in early
userspace, which 90% of the time, you don't even have to (encrypted root
is one popular exception, handling a failsafe shell is another).

The 'keyboard' hook has been in the defaullt configuration for a a while

If your keyboard doesn't work out of the box with 3.13-2, please add a
comment to the appropriate bug report [1] (that is for everyone -
comment on that bug if you have keyboard problems with 3.13-2).
Everything else is just a waste of time.
