[ipxe-devel] PS2 and USB keyboards don't work with git master + EFI

I'm netbooting an Asus Z77 motherboard using EFI, and it's able to load
snp.efi from the tftp server, boot it and get DHCP addresses, but
keyboard input doesn't work.

In menu mode, pressing a key three or four times in succession stops
the countdown, but does nothing else. In shell mode, there's no
indication that the keyboard is working at all.  And, even though I
think I've turned all the keyboard logging all the way up, there are no
debug logs from the keyboard.

My compile command currently is:
sbnet:3,usbio:15,usb:15,ehci:3,uhci:3,xhci:3 TRUST=local.lesbg.com-
ca.crt EMBED=pxeshell.ipxe bin-x86_64-efi/snp.efi

pxeshell.ipxe is:
set syslog
set use-cached 1

The alternate one I use to access the menu is:
set syslog
set use-cached 1
chain ${filename}
