I think we definitely need to figure out what is going on here.
Sending the key-left code for right-shift is definitely wrong.
(Presumably this also implies that the actual left-arrow key
is broken...)

Possibly relatedly, the Apple Extended Keyboard apparently won't send
the separate keycodes for right-shift, right-option, right-control
until the guest OS sends the keyboard a command to enable them.
page 309).

I suggest that for this patchset you leave the code so that
it continues to send the same ADB keycodes for these keys
that it has done before (whatever those are). Then once
we've got the conversion to using qcodes in we can look
at fixing this bug as a separate patch.

(Similarly, you might want to split out the code to support
the power key as a separate patch.)
