iPXE does not function properly on platforms that do not support the CTRL key.
An example of such a platform is the Apple Macbook Pro (2009). This patchset 
provides core functionality on these unsupported platforms.

Issues Solved:
 * When booting into iPXE, CTRL-B does not cancel autoboot and spawn a shell. 

 * When in the 'config' command menu, cannot exit the menu (CTRL-X) or clear
and delete entries.

This patch series solves these problems.

In the 'config' menu, it provides backwards support to the old keys.

There may exist other unpatched sections of iPXE that use the CTRL keys.
