INT 21 - DOS 2+ - IOCTL - WRITE TO CHARACTER DEVICE CONTROL CHANNEL

	AX = 4403h
	BX = file handle referencing character device
	CX = number of bytes to write
	DS:DX -> data to write
Return: CF clear if successful
	    AX = number of bytes actually written
	CF set on error
	    AX = error code (01h,05h,06h,0Dh) (see #01680 at AH=59h/BX=0000h)
Notes:	format of data is driver-specific
	  (also see separate entries below for some specific cases)
	if the file handle refers to "4DOSSTAK", the 4DOS (v2.x-3.03)
	  KEYSTACK.SYS driver will push the specified characters on the
	  keyboard stack; similarly for "NDOSSTAK", the NDOS KEYSTACK.SYS
	  driver will push the characters onto the keyboard stack
	this function was not supported by Digital Research's DOS Plus
