keyboard_clearstate - reset the state of all keys when in raw keyboard
When in raw keyboard mode, svgalib receives press and release events
from the kernel and keeps track which keys are currently pressed.
Calling keyboard_clearstate() sets this information to all keys
released. You can use this for cleanup at certain places in your
program. In addition svgalib resets the states of all keys when a VC
switch occurs because it does not know the current state of keys when
it regains control of the console.
