Notes:	scan codes 56h-E1h are only available on the extended (101/102-key)
	  keyboard and Host Connected (122-key) keyboard; scan codes 5Bh-5Dh
	  are only available on the 122-key keyboard and the Microsoft Natural
	  Keyboard; scan codes 5Eh-76h are only available on the 122-key
	  keyboard
	in the default configuration, break codes are the make scan codes with
	  the high bit set; make codes 60h,61h,70h, etc. are not available
	  because the corresponding break codes conflict with prefix codes
	  (code 2Ah is available because the self-test result code AAh is only
	  sent on keyboard initialization).  An alternate keyboard
	  configuration can be enabled on AT and later systems with enhanced
	  keyboards, in which break codes are the same as make codes, but
	  prefixed with an F0h scan code
	prefix code E0h indicates that the following make/break code is for a
	  "gray" duplicate to a key which existed on the original PC keyboard;
	  prefix code E1h indicates that the following make code has no
	  corresponding break code (currently only the Pause key generates no
	  break code)
	the Microsoft Natural Keyboard sends make codes 5Bh, 5Ch, and 5Dh
	  (all with an E0h prefix) for the Left Windows, Right Windows, and
	  Menu keys on the bottom row
	the European "Cherry G81-3000 SAx/04" keyboard contains contacts for
	  four additional keys, which can be made available by a user
	  modification; the three new keys located directly below the cursor
	  pad's Delete, End, and PgDn keys send make codes 66h-68h (F19-F21);
	  the fourth new key, named <delta>, sends make code 73h
	the SysReq key is often labeled SysRq
	the "Accord" ergonomic keyboard with optional touchpad (no other
	  identification visible on keyboard or in owner's booklet) has an
	  additional key above the Grey- key marked with a left-pointing
	  triangle and labeled "Fn" in the owner's booklet which returns
	  scan codes E0h 68h on make and E0h E8h on break
	the "Preh Commander AT" keyboard with additional F11-F22 keys treats
	  F11-F20 as Shift-F1..Shift-F10 and F21/F22 as Ctrl-F1/Ctrl-F2; the
	  Eagle PC-2 keyboard with F11-F24 keys treated those additional keys
	  in the same way
	[Note1] the "Cherry G80-0777" keyboard has additional F11-F15 keys
	  which generate make codes 55h-59h; some other extended keyboards
	  generate codes 55h and 56h for F11 and F12, which cannot be managed
	  by standard DOS keyboard drivers
	[Note2] the Schneider/Amstrad PC1512 PC keyboards contain extra keys,
	  a mouse, and a digital joystick, which are handled like extra keys.
	  The joystick's motion scancodes are converted into standard arrow
	  keys by the BIOS, and the joystick and mouse button scan codes are
	  converted to FFFFh codes in the BIOS keyboard buffer
	  (see CMOS 15h"AMSTRAD").
	  In addition to the keys listed in the table above, there are
	    Del-> (delete forward)	70h
	    Enter			74h
