INT 16 - KEYBOARD - AX PC - SET KEYBOARD COUNTRY CODE

	AX = 5000h
	BX = country code
	    0001h USA (English), 0051h Japan
Return: AL = status
	    00h successful
	    01h bad country code
	    02h other error
Notes:	This function is called with BX=0051h by Japanese versions of
	  MS-DOS/PC DOS/DR DOS IO.SYS/IBMBIO.COM at initialization time.
	the K3PLUS v6.00+ INT 16 BIOS replacement will switch between the
	  supported country specific layout (e.g. BX=0031h Germany, BX=001Fh
	  Netherlands, BX=0020h Belgium, BX=0022h Spain) (as with <Ctrl>+
	  <Alt>+<F2>) and K3PLUS' transparent mode (as with <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F1>).
	In transparent mode (BX=0001h), K3PLUS chains to the underlying
	  driver (normally the BIOS driver with US-layout). K3PLUS beeps on
	  mode changes
