So in case there would be only *OFF* token then interface is exported
too... This does not seems to be good idea.

If there is machine for which firmware provides only *ON* token, then I
think we should presence for at least two tokens.

And similarly kbd_mode_levels_count needs to be checked that is at least
two (as "off" is in count).
