Subject[PATCH] KDB: Fix usability issues relating to the 'enter' key.
Date
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, we
perform the cleanup in kgdboc_post_exp_handler path.

Tested on QEMU. Set a bp on atkbd.c to verify no scan
code was leaked.
