[PATCH] speed-up boot

Attached patch for speed-up Haiku boot on 0.75 sec.
Main idea: don't wait to give the user the opportunity to press a key for boot menu (current - "space" key) or debug output (current - ECS key), instead to use keyboard state flags - CapsLock and Scroll Lock.
At boot time (after BIOS flushed leds on keyboard) press CapsLock for boot menu or Scroll Lock for debug output.
GRUB and other first level loaders can reset keyboard led state, but not BIOS keyboard flags, so we can use this keys too.
