This was part of the previous code, but this was done inside of a switch
instead of an if. Since it's not possible to specify vkb devices in the
config file (at least xl.cfg(5) doesn't mention anything about vkbs),
I'm quite sure d_config->vkbs == NULL and d_config->num_vkbs == 0 always
or something has gone extremely wrong, just added the abort to be sure.
