KDB: Fix usability issues relating to the 'enter' key.
This fixes the following problems: 1) Typematic-repeat of 'enter' gives warning message and leaks make/break if KDB exits. Repeats look something like 0x1c 0x1c .... 0x9c 2) Use of 'keypad enter' gives warning message and leaks the ENTER break/make code out if KDB exits. KP ENTER repeats look someting like 0xe0 0x1c 0xe0 0x1c ... 0xe0 0x9c. 3) Lag on the order of seconds between "break" and "make" when expecting the enter "break" code. Seen under virtualized environments such as VMware ESX. The existing special enter handler tries to glob the enter break code, but this fails if the other (KP) enter was used, or if there was a key repeat. It also fails if you mashed some keys along with enter, and you ended up with a non-enter make or non-enter break code coming after the enter make code. So first, we modify the handler to handle these cases. But performing these actions on every enter is annoying since now you can't hold ENTER down to scroll <more>d messages in KDB. Since this special behaviour is only necessary to handle the exiting KDB ('g' + ENTER) without leaking scancodes to the OS. This cleanup needs to get executed anytime the kdb_main loop exits. Tested on QEMU. Set a bp on atkbd.c to verify no scan code was leaked.
