I have only one VServer on wheezy running a desktop environment. And
that one has been upgraded from squeeze.

There's the issue:
you could either try and remove 'Required-Start: mountkernfs' from
/etc/init.d/keyboard-setup which might be tricky as it is just aout to
be installed, or you might try and provide a very basic
/etc/init.d/dummyservices similar to this (just c&p):
cat <<EOF >/etc/init.d/dummyservices
#! /bin/sh
# Provides: mountkernfs
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Should-Start:
# Default-Start: S
# Default-Stop:
# Short-Description: Make ignorant dependency builders happy
# Description: Dependencies are not always what the should be like in our
exit 0
chmod +x /etc/init.d/dummyservices
update-rc.d dummyservices default

Untested, just typed by heart.
