Adding the modules mac_hid,hid_cherry,hid_generic,usbhid,hid and evdev to my NixOS initrd configuration helped.

I think it should be picked up by default and I don't know which of those modules are absolutely necessary, but it didn't work out of the box.

The hardware configuration picked up only the modules ehci_hcd, ahci, usb_storage and usbhid.

which kernel version?

3.5+ added a new module called hid-generic, which is needed for usb
keyboards.
usbhid is still there too, so I don't fully understand the interaction
between these.

It's still 3.2, as that's what's on the NixOS installer CD.
