If things still work, then definately yes!

It's not always enough though - I had keyboard problems with Linux as
payload in v3. The keyboard only worked in v2.

However, I don't know if it was caused by missing kbc init, or if the
problem was rather with setting up the chipset so that there _was_ a
kbc visible to begin with.
