Subject: [PATCH] Accept ESC, F8 and holding SHIFT as user interrupt keys

On some devices the ESC key is the hotkey to enter the BIOS/EFI setup
screen, making it really hard to time pressing it right. Besides that
ESC is also pretty hard to discover for a user who does not know it
will unhide the menu.

This commit makes F8, which used to be the hotkey to show the Windows
boot menu during boot for a long long time, also interrupt sleeps /
stop the menu countdown.

This solves the ESC gets into the BIOS setup and also somewhat solves
the discoverability issue, but leaves the timing issue unresolved.

This commit fixes the timing issue by also adding support for keeping
SHIFT pressed during boot to stop the menu countdown. This matches
what Ubuntu is doing, which should also help with discoverability.
