Not sure how you can get it in linux but at least in XP you can check 
usb hub properties in device manager and see power requirements reported 
by connected devices. My usb key reports 100mA, sd/mmc card reader 
250mA. Don't have usb keyboard around to check. The values should be 
maximal, i.e. device may in fact consume less. I hope it should not 
consume more.
