If the keyboards are on different USB buses you can use that difference
to distinguish between them. Like Florian said you can use Udev for
this. Did a quick search and this might be useful:
lsusb can tell you which keyboard lives on which USB bus, bear in mind
that different USB ports can live on the same bus. So the trick is to
find out if there are USB ports living on different buses and connecting
the keyboards to those specific ports.
