What is the C way of doing this? I have looked at the DECLARE_NODE function. I think it is what I need, but I could not figure out how to make it work. I found this snippet in mac-parts.c. 

DECLARE_NODE( macparts, INSTALL_OPEN, sizeof(macparts_info_t), "+/packages/mac-parts" );

What I tried was this:

DECLARE_NODE( keyboard, INSTALL_OPEN, sizeof(int), "+/pseudo-hid/keyboard" );

It didn't work. I am working with the file adb_kbd.c.
